Destroying Meritocracy Is Deadly
America’s security, safety, prosperity, and postmodern lifestyles are not our birthright. They
are the dividends of centuries of prior hard work, unfettered freedom of speech, disinterested research, and a meritocracy. Tamper with that and the system falls apart. The U.S. will then resemble what we see in most of the world abroad where ideology suppresses free inquiry, political correctness warps research, and tribalism trumps meritocracy.
