Egalitarian principles suggest that it is important to provide equal opportunities for all. Does this mean that all countries should be let into the EU on the basis of equal opportunities rather than on merit, or that every continent should get an equal number of football teams into the World Cup despite some continents clearly displaying a higher standard of football?
I don't understand this question. To say that there is equal opportunity doesn't imply that one can't make distinctions based upon "merit".
