The more merit-based an organisation is, the higher the chances of achieving levels of excellence

Merit is certainly discriminatory, that’s fine. By many people in Italy it is considered arbitrary, a scam. But the real rip-off is to treat brilliant and lazy people in the same way as we do in Italy. And I know of no alternatives: the more an organisation is meritocratic, the higher is the chances of reaching levels of excellence. So, in conclusion, if excellence is a real value, the Italians have to overcome the basic mistrust of meritocracy, otherwise they will continue to keep their seniority pay increase, in which the only “merit” is aging, the maximum of the bureaucratic concept of work. In short, only the excellent win, all the others eat dust, do we understand it or not?
