    More like a tax on hope… A lot of those people playing the lottery actually are making a rational decision, because an astronomically slim chance is still better than no chance, which is exactly what they’ve got otherwise. Poverty is designed to be inescapable.

    Yeah. What’s depressing is that the money some people will drop in a night of gambling could actually be put to good use. But the victims of that end of society don’t get taught what they need to know to use those tools; they’re kept helpless.
