There's a difference between naively assuming the world works a certain way and advocating the way it should work. Those who poop on the idea of meritocracy are often just cynically promoting a different system of merits that benefits themselves, people they see as their own kind, and those they're biased in favor of.

Other times, like this one, they are pointing out that actual meritocracy is undermined by such things as crony capitalists bribing politicians to pass laws that favor elite corporations and individuals.

Not to mention slave wages, poor healthcare, poor education, and bad working conditions meant to assure the elite of their continued status.

People without boots seldom pull themselves up by imaginary straps.

If meritocracy was real, "Gray Man" would have never been made.
