Entitlements

Random Thought:  At what point did it become okay to refer to government subsidy programs as “entitlements”?   It’s scary that it’s moving up in the definition list!  Apparently the third definition has a lot to do with the second definition getting out of control…

Primary Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of “entitlement”:  The state or condition of being entitled.

Secondary Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of “entitlement”:   A government program providing benefits to a specified group.

Third Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of “entitlement”:  The belief that one is deserving of or entitled to certain privileges.
