Michael Sandel: The Tyranny of Merit - What's Become of the Common Good?

Michael Sandel, an American political philosopher at Harvard University Law School, is the author of the 2020 book called The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good?. He believes that stalled mobility and entrenched inequality disprove the American assumption that "You can make it if you try". The consequences of this false assumption are anger and frustration which engender populist protest, extreme polarization, and distrust of government. Sandel offers an alternative way of thinking about success – more attentive to the role of luck, more conducive to an ethic of solidarity, and more affirming of the dignity of work.
