critics of socialism fear some people might try to take more than their fair share while not contributing a justifiable amount to society SO INSTEAD we have billionaires

@red "what if instead of addressing our fears, we simply lied and said it was all fair and based on your merit?"

@tcql "meritocracy" is one of those harry potter magical incantation bullshit words but for capitalist apologia

@tethre @red @tcql Meritocracy: A polite term for a hothouse for privileged mediocrities who would not be able to cut it without systemic discrimination against more capable people.

@red billionaires? surely you mean philanthropists, whom we should cherish for stealing from the poor and giving to the corporations
