“궁극의 지배자는 어떤 자(측정의 기준)를 쓸지 결정한다. 표준화는 능력주의와 공모하여 ‘공정한’ 자본주의의 근간을 이루는 것이다.”

The ultimate ruler decides which ruler to use. Standardization, in collusion with meritocracy, forms the very foundation of the ‘fair’ capitalism. In this sense the fight against the system necessarily accompanies fights against diverse measurement schemes, disguised in scientific objectivity and fairness for all. So we may want to ask ourselves, “which ruler am I serving?” whenever we take up a specific measurement/testing scheme.
