There are people who literally believe that actually having to earn anything is bad. They want society to just grant them things. I on the other hand, would say that while there is nothing inherently wrong with gifts & such occasionally, having EVERYTHING handed to you on a silver platter encourages laziness, and THAT is bad.
There is actually a lot of satisfaction to be gained from earning things.
I would most definitely not get the same level of satisfaction from being flown to the top of a mountain as I would from conquering it myself.
