Meritless Meritocracy

 Like the late Angelo Codevilla, I don't mind the idea of a meritocracy in theory; I just dislike the one we've got, which consists of overeducated and cosmopolitan pseudoaristocrats who have more sense of solidarity with their counterparts in other countries than with their fellow countrymen of the populus.

- From James Bowman's essay on "Meritless meritocracy" (The New Criterion January 2024)
