Winning! Winning! Winning
Competence is the mother of self-esteem. It is the foundation of the meritocracy and source of the American dream. Theoretically, when we study and work hard we achieve competence, feel good about ourselves and are rewarded with advancement. Competition is an integral and important part of establishing an individual identity, a family identity, a community identity, and a national identity.
breakdown in American society is a breakdown of the merit system. The radical
leftist Democrats are trying to replace the merit system with identity
politics. Here is the problem. Identity politics are inherently racist and
prejudicial because they do not measure competence or performance, they are
quota systems based on discriminatory elements like skin color, gender,
religion, etc. Identity politics are diametrically opposed to individualism and
the American dream.
