Isn’t giving people free housing, education, and healthcare communist?

C ommunists also wore hats, ate sausage, and used cutlery. Does that make hats, sausages, and cutlery communist? Did you know that Hitler drank tea? Maybe you should do a Sieg Heil every time you take a sip, because drinking tea obviously makes you a Nazi.

Meritocracy is not the same as communism. Everyone will not be paid the same, and economic competition will still occur. Meritocracy operates according to social capitalism–capitalism overseen by economists working for the general good, not for the financial oligarchy. These economists will use free markets as part of a planned strategy to maximize economic achievement–the market will be controlled by the government, not vice versa.Meritocracy advocates equal opportunity, but not equal outcome. This means that anyone can still get rich, but that they are not allowed to use their wealth as a weapon to undermine the opportunities of other people’s children.

   THE MERITOCRACY PARTY is creating a world where every child is guaranteed an equal opportunity to thrive. If you share this ideal, consider making a small donation to fund our servers, or join the MERITOCRACY INTERNATIONAL as a volunteer.

   We are artists, activists, writers, and intellectuals who crave an authentic and fair world. We feel the anomie of this age but we have a plan to fix it. Join us and create a better future‒make your grandkids proud.

CASPER SAUL joined THE MERITOCRACY PARTY in 2012. His activism focuses on economic equality--justice for the "bottom billion" whose cultures were dismantled by colonialism before being exploited by capitalism. Casper believes that guaranteed equal opportunity for every child is the only way to end the poverty caused by the financial oligarchy's concentration of wealth. He supports the MILLIONAIRE INHERITANCE TAX as the ideal policy to realize justice for impoverished communities that have been economically abused by the 1%.
