Chicago Boyz has an interesting blog post this morning. It can be found here. I disagree in that I think that the modern US educational system has so often told each person that they are a 'special snowflake' that it has exacerbated the notion that people are more deserving of, well, anything, than anyone else but that they also deserve to have it handed to them instead of work or strive for it.
It has created a generation of narcissists and the attitude of "I deserve more because I am better than all those around me" has contributed to the breakdown of the social contract.
