It is the waste that is wrong.
No society in history has devoted so much of its brain power to making and enforcing rules for gamblers.
This waste will be our undoing.
We are fools in the eyes of the other industrial countries of the world wasting our precious talent on financial gaming. While Shanghai opens a world fair today on their real accomplishments, we read about prosectors looking for a scapegoat for a society that has lost its way. What a contrast! How embarrassing!
