To be fair, even the left buys into the meritocracy thing.

Was Bill Gates worthy, or lucky?  Looks like he was just a lucky guy in the right place at the right time!

Is Tommy Douglas really "the Greatest Canadian"?  Yes, of course!  He made all the right choices and showed courage when others didn't and he changed Canada forever!!!

I've never, ever heard anyone suggest that Douglas was just in the right place at the right time.  Would you like to be the very first to suggest that?

Isn't that pretty much the gist of the article?
