Meritism ManifestoWe, the working women and men of our beautiful and plentiful land, declare in one voice to revoke all credence to economical systems based on subjective monetary representations of individual Merit.We, the contributors of food, shelter, clothing, sanitation, education, healthcare, technology, art, and sport, declare our vocations as necessary for advancing society. Vocations that do not contribute to the advancing of society are deemed not worthy of recognition.We, the laborers, believe the productivity of every valid vocation is objectively and accurately measurable.We, the mentors and parents of future generations, believe in equal education, equal nutrition, equal healthcare, and equal opportunity for all. We, the champions of equal prosperity for equal effort, believe all persons are gifted with talents and the ability to contribute meaningfully to society.We believe every individual has the right to choose how much or how little he or she contributes.The more an individual contributes, the more he or she shall be rewarded.The less an individual contributes, the less he or she shall be rewarded.If an individual contributes nothing, the individual shall have no place in the community.We, the people of the new Meritocracy, declare objective recognition of Merit for all.
