Isn’t technology and the complexity of life part of the problem? How will Meritocracy bring us back to our roots, instead of overwhelming us with techno-madness?

T echno-madness is a form of consumerism, where marketing departments spend millions convincing you to be obsessed with shopping. Techno-madness is techno-abuse, similar to drug abuse. If technology is abused, it becomes dehumanizing and alienating. The best engineers in the world right now spend their lives doing trivial things like keeping Farmville running. This is a disgusting waste of talent, and an embarrassment to our species. Meritocracy will change the economic incentives so that talented engineers will work at improving the world, not extracting a few dollars from bored web surfers. Meritocracy is a solution to techno-madness because it redirects technologists toward real social problems. What if all the scientists who make bombs for the military started working to end environmental destruction? Meritocracy can do that. If technology is used intelligently it will enhance what is best about humanity; it will become a vector of liberation for the human spirit.

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%.
