Why should I have to pay for the kids of failed parents?

In a community based on equal opportunities, no family would show disrespect to other families by trying to commandeer excessive resources for themselves at the expense of everyone else. Parents of one family would be as interested in the success of the children from other families around them. Failed families lead to crime and poverty, but with just a small amount of investment in those failed families, the people would become productive and healthy, and contribute to the well-being of everyone. Society should not be a zero-sum game. Everyone benefits when everyone benefits. Today’s society is one which constantly promotes the acquisition of commodities as the sign of success and status, and simultaneously denies enormous numbers from having any realistic chance of acquiring happiness. This creates a social structure which drives some people towards crime as the only means by which they can achieve the status society trumpets as the greatest good. A meritocratic society ensures that the pecking order will be abolished, and that everyone, with no exceptions, will benefit from the fruits of civilization. Your family will no longer have to worry about losing status or losing position in the pecking order, because every family will be well-off, fulfilled and happy, have access to all the necessities of life, and have the opportunity for self-actualization.

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%.
