VISION AFORETHOUGHT

Common sense analysis of this, that and the other

The West’s disease

leave a comment »

Over the last few years, there have been countless ads featuring not very well educated dodgy looking and sounding men promoting online gambling. “‘ello mate, 5/1 Chelsea score in the next 15 minutes.” And so on. Oh dear! Not to mention the casino style apps.

And then we read this.

What is it about the West that encourages irresponsible lifestyle and behavior and then later, we (the tax payer) have to clean up the mess? In California, where gambling is illegal, I was impressed how financially and personally responsible most people were. Organised with their finances, in control of their lives and never ever complaining about their lot or demanding of the state.

I have always believed the British attitude to capitalism to be highly immoral, equal to the junk food culture in the US (again, California is different, being people are sporty and well educated), and the aforementioned article in The Times really proves the point. As do my views on cancer, another man made disaster that is costing us billions to deal with.
