I am sorry you feel that way. If you could please point me to this Capitalist Democratic Society you speak of, that would be appreciated, probably by all people on this forum. Are you not aware, this phony two party Democratic Society you speak of is in fact the veil of the most insidious plutocracy to ever govern this earth.
btw you missed one key difference between communism, meritocracy, and capitalistic democracy. The reason why communism failed, and why the current democracy will fail, the Elite came to power. This will not be allowed in a meritocratic society, by the very laws that govern a meritocratic society. Has there ever been a meritocratic society? America was originally supposed to be one, but we all know what happened when the banks took over. So how can you be so quick to judge. I myself couldn't be sure, because I have never lived in a meritocratic society, but I have lived long enough in this country, and read enough about how it works, to know that it doesn't operate by the rules of its own constitution, which btw essentially calls for a meritocracy. All men are created equal, but in this day and age a man's wealth is his status. This is not what the founding fathers of this country called for. It's your choice, if you agree that people deserve nothing more then to be wage slaves, keep defending this system you believe to be functioning healthily.

but the hideous thing about meritocracy is that it tells you that if you’ve given life your all and haven’t got to the top you’re thick or stupid. Previously, at least, you could always just blame the class system in a Capitalistic society.
They clearly state that they want to abolish political parties and hence establish a one "world" government - be it good or not. I can imagine the lack of free speech denied to people who might be against to the notion!
