Symptom #3 – Entitlement Syndrome

Some people feel that they are entitled to basic human rights. That’s wonderful. Some people feel that you’re responsible for guaranteeing them. That’s not.

Freedom of Speech is an often-used BuzzPhrase™ by dipshits. They make references to the First Amendment. Let me quote it here, just so we’re on the same page:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Congress shall make no law… So what that says is, when someone tells you to shut up, they’re not actually violating anything? In fact, for Congress to make a law preventing such would be a violation of the First Amendment.

This is exemplary of the Entitlement Syndrome. Dipshits seem to reinterpret things to afford them more entitlement in a given situation. When you don’t guarantee said entitlement, you become the tyrant. And those less capable of reading give a decided sigh of support to said dipshit. When someone says or does something that defies their world-perspective, they launch a barrage of personal attacks. This is almost always a direct violation of their so-called rights, a double standard at best.

Dealing with this type of dipshit: This is one of the easier ones, when it remains on the small scale. Ignoring them and quoting truth works to shut them up or keep their complaints within certain circles. On a larger scale, expect plenty of argument. Your best bet is to create a professional-looking cease and desist letter. For assistance, feel free to contact the editor at
