True Meritocracy

About

Meritocracy is a political ideology affirming that individual skills and abilities should determine power and influence in society. Group identities, biologic or social, are only considered as secondary attributes. Granted, biologic identities are more meaningful than your social identities; given how the former are stable from birth to death. We are against unjust discrimination based on group affiliations, i.e. both the positive and negative kind, and consider the former to be thinly veiled bigotry. 

We are passionate supporters of everything furthering progress and development. It follows that we want to remove anything hindering such noble pursuits. We are fierce champions of evidence-based politics, and will not support policies without scientific backing. Indeed, this movements commitment to science is unparalleled, and will change politics forever. True Meritocracy is all about pursuing truth and progress no matter where it leads us!
