Shaun A Saunders' "Equal Opportunity" (flash fiction, non-genre, free)

This could have come from Ayn Rand - rule of the mediocre over the competent.

Such an old trope ought to be boring, except that it's being taken far too seriously by segment-the-electorate politicians in India - actually turning the crazy premise into laws. Search for "reservations in education & government jobs" on for some real-life sampling.

Mediocre-mongering boss in this story is way too dumb. Wish they were like that in real life!
