To add to the answer that Miriam has supplied, I would like to suggest
that if that sentence puzzled you, then you may be interested to read
/The Rise of the Meritocracy/ (1958) by Michael Young, which is the
work that introduced the word "meritocracy" to the English language.
It's quite short and well worthwhile.

Best regards,
