In the UK, is there a culture of entitlement and when does social expectancy become unjustified?
I think the recession has highlighted an element of British culture and thinking where personal gain at other's expense and lack of appreciation for wealth is encouraged. In a country that has a broad class system and an unequal spread of wealth, our culture inexplicably celebrates unjustifiable entitlement.
Is this thinking itself justifiable? If it is, how do you define 'entitlement' and where does the feeling of deserving stop being justifiable and become comdemnable?
