Meritocracy originates from China, and was regarded as the top standard of political system of Ancient China.
However, today’s West look at CCP China as a political meritocracy system, opposed to their democracy system.
But my question is, is China really a political meritocracy?
If we can not figure out the reality of our political system, how do we even confirm that we are actually a meritocracy? A system that values talents and abilities instead of wellborn backgrounds and connections?
