On meritocracy posted by Richard SeymourChina quotes this, so I may as well:
"To imply that those currently at the top - the Warren Buffets and Roman Abramoviches of this world - are the very best, the nec plus ultra of humanity, is a kind of hate speech toward the species. Dignity demands that we refute it."
— Richard Seymour, The Meaning of David Cameron, Zero Books, 2010
