Do you deserve what you're entitled to?

We need to distinguish between what people feel they deserve versus what they feel they're entitled to. Just deserts versus entitlement is a subtle shift that focuses either on what the person has made and the pride s/he takes in that act of production versus on what the person feels comes to him/her by virtue of their membership in the society or some such.
