Casinos & The “Family” Spirit


I always asked about liberty… and till now surely no one gave me the real meaning of this frequently spoken term…
It is easy to say “I don’t want to have limits” and “I don’t want to be attached to someone or something”… “I will do all what I want to do and no one has to ask me a simple question… I’m free...”
Practicing all this maybe somewhat difficult, seeing the human communities’ rules (without entering now in the issue that they are good or not)… but there is still many persons doing it on their way…
What about the ones who enter in a life sharing process? And its typical example is a family?
I don’t know if we may say that the self freedom may change when someone is married; but I don’t think so… It may be explained and lived in a different way… but it always exists…
A family is not something we can play with… not just this, a family is a unit, composed of many members having the same rights and surely the same freedom (I’m not talking about oriental families)…
For both of these examples or these two extremes, the end of their freedom is when it may “hurt” others…
No one living without rules has the right to kill or destroy someone’s life… and so, nor a father neither a mother or even children has the right to destroy the family life… surely I mean by their own decision and without discussing such a complicated issue between them…

Casinos and the dream of cheap fortune… playing there is a disease more than a habit…
It is something more than the simple idea of having fun…
These centers are typically made for the ones who “are not sure”… who want to “try”… who believe in “luck”…
I believe that the ones who go there “must not” make a family, that’s how no body cares if they lose something or everything…
If they are not sure, how can they take a decision to marry… or was it someone else’s decision?
If they want to try, their family is not the place to do it…
The big question is: why do casinos and their games destroy families? The answer is in what they intend to hide; and they may hide by lying and even beating everyone who questions them…
Maybe everything is due to the psychosis of “always losing”…
And if they really believe in luck, I assure them that the only one who is “lucky” is the casino’s owner…
While the bad “luck” is the death of their family spirit…
