Sense of Entitlement and Ownership

Employers love it when employees develop a sense of owership. When employees have a sense of ownership they treat a thing like they own it. They take of the thing and make sure it is working to maximum efficiency for the company.

Employers complain like the dickens when employees have a sense of entitlement.

I thought I would point out the bizarre relation between ownership and entitlement.

If you actually owned something, then you are entitled to whatever proceeds that something brings.

This is how our Founding Fathers saw the world. People owned things and were entitled to whatever improvements they made to the things. By creating a culture that promoted ownership, the Founders laid the foundation for the emergence of a great middle class.

Progressives despise the Middle Class.

They sought to destroy it..

Our progressive overlords created a truly disfunctional legal and financial system that attempted to abstract off risk and reward to be traded on centralized exchanges.

In attempting to abstract off and sell risk and reward, the bozo's created a dysfunctional system that separated the sense of entitlement and ownership from real ownership.

Needless to say, the solution to our economic malaise is to find ways to restore real, actual ownership.
