on gambling

I don’t gamble.

I don’t bet.

It is not for lack of resources. One explanation is I did well in my statistics class. But that’s not why I am writing this post.

Even though our lives depend on chance. You have no involvement in who your parents gonna be. Which country you will be born in. What shitty religion those around you practice; you could be unlucky to be born to Mormon parents or Scientologists or Muslim. All this is chance.

To then make a population invest their life savings or earnings in a game of chance is, in my view, unconscionable. Gambling houses, like churches are leeches. Their owners spread a false narrative where only a few people win and the rest continue to game hoping they will win.

Gamble if you will, just like you go to church. But I think both things are incredibly stupid to place ones bets [pun intended] on.
