Is Meritocracy Dead in America?ST
Here's an interesting spin on the class warfare that seems to have grown much worse over the past decade. MSNBC's Chris Hayes opines in his new book that America is no longer a meritocracy, but an aristocracy with a couple hundred million serfs. In a lot of ways, it's hard to argue against that. He makes the point that the ruling elite weren't satisfied just climbing the ladder, they had to pull it up behind them. What do you guys think? Is America still a meritocracy, or are we forever doomed to this inequity?
