Is Lottery a positive or negative?

What do you think about Lottery? Does it benefit the society because some of the funds goto Public education or does it harm the society since it wastes the Money of 99.9999% of the People based on a false hope? Keeping in mind as well noted in attached Video, most sales with Lottery have actually seen a reduction in Money going to Public Education!
Simply put: what would Jesus say and do about Lottery?

I will never advise one to do gambling, its the biggest scam in the world.I have see so many people go down financially and mentally after loosing all their money. But if it makes you feel better why not go for it. This life is short and we should always do what make us happy.

I agree @nursingwritings. It all comes down to what the individual feels. I sometimes like to gamble and play a scratch game....or two...lol. I win a little here and there, but I keep in mind that it is just that.......a game.

Nurse: "This life is short and we should always do what make us happy."

BULLPUCKY.

According to this quote of yours it is OK for one to KILL someone, AS LONG AS ONE IS HAPPY. Since WHEN does YOUR happiness trump the happiness of others?

I think the issues is not that "Is Lottery a positive or negative" on itself, that can be debated. But that as the John Oliver Video states the reason given for it by the states that offer is that it is a source of funding public education in USA, and that is Bull S***, just another BS of right-wing Media om US. Because college education is costing an insane $100K per Year putting Millions of Americans in Debt for most of their lives, in fact a recent report put the College debt at a stunning

$1.5 Trillion, right after Home mortgages.
Meanwhile, in Germany, France, Norway, Denmark, etc. where they fund College education via the Taxes their people pay, people in these Countries go to College FREE for Taxes they pay. And this is on top of healthcare that they get FREE for Taxes they pay, because they operate these essential services on Socialized basis. But us Americans, under Good Cop Bad Cop Con Job of Republicans and Dems get NONE of these social services and instead the bastard

Republicans and Dems and Wall Street Billionaire Cabal that makes these FAKE Parties possible, they have gotten us American people paying same Taxes but we get none of these social services for our Taxes and instead our Taxes are wasted on War after War and a Gargantuan Military. Such as us poorer American People giving $200 Bill in Free Military to Richer European Union, aka NATO. And to add insult to injury they tell us buy Lottery to finance College education. And Americans falls for this :(

Well there is a room for Lottery playing. But why in GODs name are the Governments ok to run it and not us the private businesses! And what is even worse is that the reason given to us for playing lottery in US is that it will help fund Education and college education costs an insane $100K+ in US while college education in Germany, France, Norway, etc. are free based on the Taxes that people pay, just as we Americans pay Taxes but get nothing for it!

To me it is fun to hear the bells and watching all kind of folks doing it. Some are winning but most are losing. It is both + and N. Each person must choose who much to play to lose are win

Well yes Lottery is fine, one can make the argument for some Gambling being fun. But the other issue that this post raises, is that is using the excuse of Funding Public schools via Lottery Money fine? As being done in USA. The answer to which is clearly NOT, as Public schools should be funded via general Taxation and operated on Socialized basis as they are in Germany, France, Sweden, Norway, etc. were People can go to College FREE for Taxes they pay while same College can cost $100K+ in USA!

It has some potential benefits but its potential harm to the society is more remarkable. It makes people lazy. It makes people skip jobs because they become addicted to "winning" money other than "earning" money. Once people believe in winning money rather earning money the social effect becomes catastrophic.

"You are very happy when you win, but you are very upset, discouraged, nervous and depressed when you loose. Do not get addicted to it".
