A meritocracy is a society in which success and failure belong to those who 'deserve' them. What you get depends directly on the decisions you make and on archiving the right balance between responsibility and audacity. Yet, a key point is frequently overlooked: identical circumstances, means, and opportunities must be guaranteed for meritocracy to make sense. In this article, Sol Minoldo highlights the danger of the reverse the logic, that is, assuming that the different achievements are a reliable proof that some made more effort than others, and discusses what a higher performance might actually reflect.
