Is meritocracy the best form of government?
Performance-based distribution of power would eliminate all forms of inequality.
If the system can equalize the candidates, and therefore to be sure everybody have the same level of opportunities, then, it will work.
Factors like political propaganda or having connections would no longer have an influence on the distribution of power.
There is room for subjectivity and error in performance-based distribution of power too.
There will be always
class hierarchies and social barriers
that would not permit a real meritocracy.
