Meritocracy? (05/01/22 16:31:56)
    For those with enough money and time and interest and asuitable-for-the-purpose political leaning I would recommend Adrian Wooldridge: "The Aristocracy of Talent. How Meritocracy Made the Modern World". In some way it is an extension and follow-up of Michael Young's "The Rise of the Meritocracy" from the 1960ies. But it is much better, well researched and thought-provoking - in stark contrast to its predecessor. For me it was specially interesting to see his description of the corruption of meritocracy. I think I have seen it in some academic institutions- but now I have evidence that it isn't only my paranoia.
