What if I want to pass my business on to my son whom I’ve trained from birth to run it?

W hat system would you design to find the most meritorious CEO to replace you? Why not have a society where every position of power is filled by the person who is best suited for it? If your son is the most meritorious, let the Meritocratic system pick him for the job. But shouldn’t the role go to whoever can prove himself? Don’t infantilize your son by giving him rewards he didn’t earn.

When everyone is judged on merit rather than family connections, we all benefit. We won’t pass privilege to our kids, but neither will other families. The Meritocratic system you design for selecting meritorious leaders should apply equally to everyone, including your kids. Any other policy leads to a destructive conflict spiral—a family feud that holds our species back.

   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%.
