SHOOT: Entitlement is a very nasty thing...it is expecting something, being dissatisfied without it and not being appreciative even when you get it. It's a self-centred trait that simply expects what has gone before to be mine [eg. suburbia, car use, wealth, religious beliefs etc] but makes no critical analysis of what's wrong [or right] with the world. It's an inherited attitude of consumerism, with all its de[p]rived meaning and depraved values [money and gadgets over relationships]. It's a recipe for life stripped of meaning and happiness because all meaning is derived from the habits of others - mostly celebrities and TV-Land characters - and are thus lifestyles that have no future.
