    Who decides what is meritorious?

    Who decides what that merit is worth?

    If your rely is "the market"... who controls that market?

    Nope. Can't afford it.
    Two baths? Holy crap! You are obviously living far beyond your means....

    Then it would seem I was brought up with the right value system, since I do reject Marxism.

    Where I work the decisions on merit began with a small group of three of us who were responsible for accomplishing the mission. From there our prioritized lists went higher, got tweaked and then came back to us.

    The market is just a shorthand way of saying you get to decide for you and I get to decide for me.

    It is very hard to tell. Congratulations. Or do you just give it a prettier label?

    And perhaps you would be a conservative instead of a socialist. Understood.

    free of bias, free of discrimination, level playing field ... being white and male doesn't matter (just a coincidence that for most of our history most of the most powerful and lucrative jobs have been held by white men) ... purely merit, right? LOL ...
