Entitlement and Blame

January 24, 2008

Mr. Barnett, president of the Chamber of Commerce, gave an interesting speech this week at the Hamilton Rotary club.  He spoke of a growing the trend of a ‘sense of entitlement’  Bermudians.  He pointed to “dumbing down” education and a lack of family cohesion and parental responsibilities as the reasons behind Bermuda’s social ills. 

I’ve also noticed a growing culture of blame on the island.  New Onion also mentioned this in a previous post.  Unfortunately, the growing Bermudian mentality seems to be that if one doesn’t achieve what they feel they are entitled to they blame someone else for their lack of achievement instead of looking at what they could have done better or improve on.
