#meritocracy Voor een goed begrip van Sandel's 'The tyranny of the meritocracy' is het nuttig een diepte-investering te doen in bv. De Beer v Pinxteren red. 'Meritocratie: Op weg naar een nieuwe klassensamenleving?' Nederlands, helaas. Maar wel open access…
Aantekeningen. Allereerst bij de opening van Paul de Beer. De redacteuren hebben ervoor gekozen om aan te sluiten bij de dystopie van Michael Young (1958), en van meritocratisering te spreken als het belang van IQ toeneemt tov. andere factoren voor maatschappelijk succes.
Dat is een riskante keuze. Het lokt tal van misverstanden uit over intelligentie als een vaststaand kenmerk van individuen waarvan zij kunnen verschillen van anderen. En dat gaat dus ook onmiddellijk mis, op blz. 11-12. De Beer waarschuwt dat (verschillen in) IQ niet volledig

#My_Twitter_Rule 20/1
Our youth in a rush to create following on digital platforms. It is good start, but do they know what next. Having big following is just tool, unless one knew what to do with it, interest will die down after a while. Please read & learn who we (Muslims) are?
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/2
But read what? How to build #knowledge. #Information & Knowledge are two different things. Use Authentic sources, Introspection, Deliberation & Exchanges brings #Wisdom to the discourse.
Starting point is always #Quran! Read once translation & commentary....
#My_Twitter_Rule 20/3
Quran is a biggest gift of Allah, a guide, a constitution & a Hidaya. THAWAB is not its primary purpose!
Prophet SAW biography. He is a leader, head of state, a commander, peace maker, Mercy to mankind, role model (husband, father neighbor an orphan himself)

1.I watched a video of @mahbubani_k discussing his new book Has #China Won with Rob Johnson @INETeconomics in May. I am amazed by his insights into #China and China-USA relations. Here are some of them. Credit
2.#USA launches a major geopolitical contest with #China without first working out a strategy on how to deal with a country whose population is 4 times bigger and with a history of thousands of years while American is only 250 years old.
3. 🇺🇸 has a number of misconceptions of its own strengths and 🇨🇳’s weaknesses.

I hate utiopian “world could be like this if we only did or didn’t do this” thinking that doesn’t help people with now.
Major changes take centuries, we need to enable people to deal with now & move up the ladder to earn more money now, to buy back their freedom.
Money matters
In western world your health, livelyhood, social currency and all else depends on your access to money. Your access to money and thus freedom from the system is limited based on many factors, some spoken about and some not.
Freedom from the system depends on (spoken):
1. Birth place
2. Parents class (and if they are divorced, what they do & do you have both of them,how much money they had and social currency)
3. What neighborhood you lived in
4. What schools you went to
5. First job

"Common sense will tell us, that
the power which hath endeavoured to subdue us, is of all others, the
most improper to defend us."
"Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity...

Ooh baby let’s break some of this down. What affirmative action and diversity & inclusion programs (flawed as some were/are) reveal is the lie of American #meritocracy & #bootstrapism.
Affirmative action & diversity programs have repeatedly sought out women, people of color & increasingly queer & disabled people for opportunities for which they are qualified. These programs consider experiences of oppression an important perspective these folks bring.
Further, when these programs occur in early education settings smart, creative & otherwise talented marginalized kids get to have their interests & skills nurtured in ways their families may not be able to provide either financially or bc of lack of awareness of such programs.
