Asking More Of The Entitled

There is a curious breed of people in organizations and communities that feel entitled. Entitlement is expectation of benefits without the costs of contribution. Some were born into it, some develop it and some are thrust into it by circumstances. A life of entitlement is a life requiring all manner of medication because it is a life that denies the inherent significance of every life.

We have a social responsibility to always ask more of them. Asking sends a message that implies their potential value beyond their perceived value. Whether they get the message or not is immaterial. It's our opportunity to invite more simply because it makes their contributions more possible.
