meritocracy is plainly bullshit and actually breeds incompetence
Belief in meritocracy ignores that people can easily get advantages in the form of wealth or power which significantly aid their "merit" or can outright subvert any system trying to evaluate their "merit". It is just complete bullshit. What if we just didn't do jobs we aren't capable of and stopped punishing people for doing different types of work? That would be better than how these meritocratic systems just end up putting incompetent privileged white failsons in roles they're not actually capable of doing because they had a private tutor their entire life to get this job and never learned anything from all the handholding they got, or their parents donated money to all the schools they went to so they'd get in and not drop out before. Ta-da! Now you have your "successful" career you're completely unqualified for!
Honestly some of my peers really ought to be doing something else they're more capable of or that brings them more happiness and not have to be fearful of becoming impoverished and shit for admitting they're not suited for their work.
