Who Made ‘Entitlement’ a Dirty Word?
Posted On: Aug 08, 2017
Aug. 8, 2017 | SOCIAL JUSTICE | … So how did the word “entitlement” become such a mean spirited place where we listen to and even agree with arguments that “entitlements” must be slashed?

If everyone receiving entitlements are viewed as just pigs, selfishly slurping at the trough, then indeed the rest of us will be left with nothing. But, what if it’s not a zero sum game? laborpress.com
