Does Meritocracy care about equal representation?

T he issue here is how you define equal representation. Meritocracy achieves equal representation where democracy fails.

Does your democracy benefit every single person equally? When a decision is made by a democracy, nine times out of ten that decision will benefit a few super-rich families while disadvantaging everyone else. That’s not equal representation. In the United States, multi-millionaires have lower tax rates than their secretaries. Who is democracy working for? The history of democracy shows that visiting the ballot box every few years does not lead to equal representation. Politicians get into power and then ignore the will of the people. When politicians can lie to get elected, you have no representation at all.

Meritocracy achieves equal representation by actually accomplishing social goals. We all want more prosperity, better healthcare, educational opportunities, and an end to poverty. Meritocracy puts qualified experts in the right places so that government will actually achieve these objectives. By accomplishing social goals, Meritocracy enacts the general will of the people and demonstrates equal representation. Meritocracy doesn’t just say it will improve society; it actually has a logical plan, and a credible way of doing it.

The Meritocratic government is explicitly chartered to improve the quality of life of all citizens. Leadership positions are publicly vetted and all stakeholders have a voice. Anyone can be a leader by proving their merit. Demonstrate your knowledge, your skill, your proven experience, your plan for solving social issues. Convince the others in your area of expertise that you can help. The Meritocratic system picks leaders on the basis of their ability and willingness to benefit everyone, and when everyone is genuinely benefited, everyone is genuinely represented.

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%.
