The concept of entitlement can feel a little ‘middle-class’, even a little ‘precious’. The concern of this paper is to explore how entitlement is a practice of getting and protecting what we feel is ‘rightfully ours’? Have you and I been duped into chasing rainbows, duped into thinking that there is pot of gold of comfort, meaning or significance in the next thing we ‘possess’? Is there more to entitlement than simply the excesses of ‘selfish capitalism’? Can entitlement be a measure of the mutual responsibility we have toward others, a measure of what we’re actively sharing in/with others?
