Entitlement? Spoiled Brats? Or Just Progress?
from the you-cannot-deny-what-technology-allows dept
I don't think people are complaining because they feel entitled, so much as they recognize the power of technology to provide these sorts of things and recognize that what technology allows cannot and will not be undone. I don't think that's about being "spoiled." I think it's about recognizing progress. Is it "spoiled" to use a telephone or email to communicate? Is it "spoiled" to travel by a car or airplane? Or is it just the march of progress that enabled these things, and which people are quite happy about using because it makes their lives better?
If anything, it seems like the sense of "entitlement" and the feelings of being "spoiled" is coming from those who wish to hold back progress, and to keep things the way they were in the past, rather than embracing what the technology and progress have enabled.
