Hi Arjun, I just had to chime in when I saw this.
I think none. However, if I had to choose who would be heavier on the Meritocratic scale than others, it would Zoltan Istvan; the first U.S. Presidential candidate of the Transhumanist Party.
He see’s progression, human evolution, as something to advocate for and participate in as a responsible and forward thinking citizen. So for me, anything resembling teleological advancement as apposed to the stagnation and/or devolution of those you mention, is the least-worst of the evils I would choose. So if that is how you vote - in choosing to participate in the first place- then vote for someone you Gknow is sincere in their efforts to better the world.
Personally, Zoltan is not aware enough to garner my gracious appreciation via a vote; yet, if the system mandated my participation in the fraud of another American/Corporate election, then I would be forced to vote for Zoltan.
I can’t wait to see candidates worthy of my vote, but bet your buck that I am not holding my breath for the next couple of elections. If a true Meritocrat comes along, I will be working for their election in anyway I can. In the mean time, I would rather be crawling in asbestos than spending half an hour to grace the polls with my presence.
