How many of you would agree with a meritocratic elitism?
I'm talking not elitism based on money or blood, one based on creativity, artistic achievement, and intelligence? Just wondering. Because many of you would fit the bill for innovation and original thinking.

This would be a form of elitism all the worthy could and would aspire too, which sought to inspire greatness by investing in it and proliferating it.

It would be closed membership, but status and membership would not be imbued by birth, it would be conferred upon people who achieved something noteworthy or showed evidence of achieving a depth of thought that pushed humanity to new heights. like a knighting. And the people within it would do good works.

What if the group believed in giving the wisdom back to the people? Let's call this hypothetical group the Scions of the Seventh Dawn just for kicks.

That's what they've done already. Look at Harvard and Yale and what they've done to our current world.

It's already been tried and it stinks.

The definition of Merit and the benefit with the reward. It has no structure, it is rarely planned and when it is present everyone recognizes it.

People right now in civilised society have power and position when it comes to Intelligence and Art. They have great influence over us already. The Science world and the Art world is there already with its innovators.

Some of us pay these people Attention and some of us don't. For those who do, Hope and Inspiration is around most of the time.

Re: How many of you would agree with a meritocratic elitism?
I don't see how this idea is any different than what they've been pushing for the past twenty or thirty years.

I am not in favor of any elite who rules and orders the rest of humanity around as a bunch of slaves to be bullied around while the elite lives a lavish lifestyle at everyone's expense.

Re: How many of you would agree with a meritocratic elitism?
Have you read or seen this? Shows the classification system on merit doesn't work because that is where sickness and susceptibility of dis-ease comes in, but in that, nature always comes back full force to recorrect/realign. Look at farming/agriculture as an example and nature, what we have done to it.
This is the Mormon topic on good works vx. grace topic, lol

You sound like some Idealistic Moran that just graduated from Brain-Wash Camp.

I have been immersed in the current toxic system for awhile.

Both privately and publicly.

There is no such thing as "Merit".

There is theft, plagiarism, false-flag, psy-op, sedition, subversion, mind-pattern-programming.

When any individual exhibits anything close to "merit" they will be taken out by toxic Totalitarians.

Everything you know is Fraud, and Deceit.

You are in the right place here...

GLP is a great place to attempt recovery from the Brain-Washing, Mind-Pattern-Programming, Mind-Control, assaults.

Everyone is different, some recover faster than others.

If you say so. I feel a kinship with you guys, but I am also aware that the only way to undo mind control is with mind control. Deprogramming is a (depending on your perspective) benevolent programming technique. I will only accept programming from people with similar values, otherwise I will be resistant and make your work rather difficult.

Here is an example...

I always had uncertainty regarding WW II, and what happened.

I read every Jew-Stream Book I could find, and remained confused.

Until I finally pieced together much of the story with other sources.

Here is a piece of the story.

"Hellstorm" Documentary

It was Jews against Germany, not Germany against Jews.

Programmed with lies.

Every system is already a meritocracy, according to the ppl running it.
