It seems to me the cultural ethos is ďIf I want it, I am entitled to get it. I donít need to think of the public good or the future because if I donít get it, somebody else will. Besides, no one will have the guts to tell me No. If itís against the law, the law will not be enforced.Ē

I see this attitude in taxi drivers on the beach, fishermen who ignore the regulations, developments like South Beach, construction of ďmy dock,Ē importing cars, etc. Iím entitled to MINE, no matter what the effect.
