Entitlement

Entitlement by definition is “that you deserve more than others”; and by the same reasoning, you don’t deserve less, and when you get less, it’s a problem, and someone’s going to pay for that problem.

An Unleashed Summer

It seems like things (the world) is opening up. The constraints of a year in hibernation and wanting to be released portents an unleashed summer.
