they certainly act like they are entitled to the hand out, justifying themselves by talking about how many worthless devalued 1960s and 1970s dollars they paid into the system

You see those dollars as "worthless and devalued", because they are today - which is all you've ever known. They weren't when those people were having them taken from their pay.

Your attitude and conclusions are based on your experience, which is considerably more limited than theirs. The idea that they should discard attitudes and conclusions based on their own depth of experience and adopt those based on your own perspective based on a much shallower pool of experience is, IMHO, just another form of "it's all about ME".

Yes, it is all about ME paying into Soc Sec for 25 years now, many of those years with six figure income, and getting jack squat when I retire in another 25 years. So, yeah, I’m grumpy.
