Right- capitalism does still seem to win no matter what in this country. Maybe why we spend so much time on culture wars that aren’t tied to capitalism. They used to hate gambling too, but that’s changed now that it’s so profitable.

I would argue that gambling has changed so much that the states have sanctioned gambling. The California lottery funds the education system!

Oregon has no sales tax, supposedly because it makes plenty of tax revenue through gambling.


I think the reality we have now, specifically with sports betting, is gonna lead to an explosion of gambling addiction and financial destruction for a lot of people. I don’t think it should be illegal, I think the advertising should be heavily restricted.
