O mal da "meritocracia" está na "-cracia", não no "mérito-"

The Problem Isn't the 'Merit,' It's the 'Ocracy', em The Scholar's Stage:

A pure meritocracy undistorted by existing class cleavages will distort the nation it is inflicted upon. Deciding who rules and who is ruled through a system which selects on a narrow field of virtues inevitably leads to one outcome: an aristocracy of the meritorious few who do not have the experience or the inclination to act in the interests of masses less virtuous than they.
O post é totalmente EUA-cêntrico, mas penso que pode ser generalizado sem grande esforço.
