Meritocrats of the Caribbean

So what is the connection between a movie about a swashbuckling crew of thieves and a rational political system? Simple: Jack Sparrow.

Celebrate Black History Month? You’re Damn Right I Don’t!

You’re damn right I don’t celebrate Black History Month. I don’t celebrate any holidays or time-of-the-month “menstruating” happy days. It’s all nonsense. Unless the celebration is accomplished by the living of one’s own life—unless every day we live the principles of great men and women, where we look to the present and future as the […]

Post-Humanity: Transhumanism, Libertarianism, and the End of History—Part II

In the United Kingdom, the use of preimplantation genetic diagnosis to select a child’s sex is illegal. Every year, tens of British parents—including prominent politicians—travel abroad to the United States and elsewhere to circumvent the legal restrictions against PGD in their home country. The lesson: legal prohibitions [...]

Death of Liberalism

Liberalism is over. As an ideological movement, liberalism has lost all of its power and has been stripped of its former nobility. Once viewed as the guardians of science and humanism within the political sphere, liberal institutions have now been subsumed by the corporate state. All liberal values have been reformulated; melted down and recast […]

Broken Laws

The world is broken precisely because people, especially lawmakers, do not have a respect for—or understanding of—the laws of a nation. When our very own lawmakers give in to laziness, lobbyists and corruption, then how can good laws come about? We create a vicious cycle: bad lawmakers produce bad laws, and naturally the citizenry do […]

How Do You Define Merit in a Meritocracy?

A common concern with Meritocracy is the question of defining merit. We’re led to believe that everyone has their own definition of merit, and that this stops Meritocracy from ever being truly effective. While it’s true most people will have their own idea of what constitutes merit, this is a far deeper question than we […]

There is no meritocracy: It’s just the 1 percent, and the game is rigged | Salon

Our politicians love to call the system a “meritocracy”, while ignoring reality. Obama promised change: out with the old and in with the new. Why then are so many members of his cabinet part of the same clique that have run Washington for decades? A true Meritocracy would give everyone the same chance to reach […]

Bosnia presents a terrifying picture of Europe’s future – and a way out | The Guardian

Many protest movements are criticized for having few positive ideas. Concerned people assemble to demand change, but apologists for the status quo ask, “How do I know your ideas won’t make the bad government even worse?” The strongest position that protesters can hold is that of supporting Meritocracy. Meritocracy has actionable ideas that will improve […]

And keep in mind, this child is still you, simply the best of you. You could conceive naturally a thousand times and never get such a result.” —Geneticist, “Gattaca” It […]

Mass Incarceration Is Modern-Day Slavery

The bottom tier of the American population is made up of slaves. Not metaphorical slaves, in the sense that we’re all slaves to some corporate master or another; the lowest economic class of the population are literal slaves, as in they wear heavy chains around their ankles, they sleep in cages, and during the day […]
