Can they at least WIN "life's lottery" before your jealously takes over?Earth_First
Could someone explain why this wouldn't work?
Instead of one or small group of individuals winning this obscene $540 million dollar Mega Millions lottery; why couldn't 540 set of numbers be drawn and add 540 new millionaires to the economy?
Ot nationalize a lottery with similar results?
Funny...all the years I've spent a couple dollars twice a week on the lottery...I've never left holding a pick 6 ticked feeling instilled with hope.lastlib
8. No--I'm saying that the probability of winning it is so infinitesimal
that it instills false hope in people, many of whom cannot realistically afford to throw money away by playing it.
Lotteries are also inherently undemocratic. They allow one person (or a small number of people) to become instant millionaires by sheer chance, without doing anything to earn that wealth by skill or merit. They take money from many (mostly poor or lower- to middle-income) to enrich a few for no other reason than luck of the draw. This goes against everything that a liberal democracy should stand for.
