Why Do People Like to Try Their Luck on Lottery?
When you walk on the street, you may see a lot of people rushing into some shops or gathering together buying lotteries, such as welfare lottery tickets, sports lottery tickets and so on. Perhaps you will be shocked by their enthusiasm for such kind of things. Some even spend a large amount of money on them in order to increase the possibility of winning the prize. If the lotteries fail their expectations, they get so disappointed that they may curse or even beat themselves. I think people try their luck on lottery for several reasons.
First of all, they try their luck because they want to win a large sum of money with just a little effort. They may think their idea is justified and the dream is not far away. They cherish the hope of getting rich overnight. As is reported by CCTV, a man in Shandong province becomes a criminal after his failure of trying his luck. He has spent all his money on the lottery. He now becomes homeless and leads a miserable life. As far as I am concerned, trying one’s luck on lottery is like gambling. You do not know the rate of winning back your money but you cannot resist the lure of having a try, which is, almost surely, disastrous. Very few people can succeed in this business.
Secondly, the society is getting more commercial and material than before. People work just for more money. In other words, some of them prefer money to morals. They are thinking of some shortcut to get rich in the society. I think the social climate exerts a subtle influence on their psychology. We need to clean the social climate for a better humane environment. We should educate people to earn their living by honest labor rather than trying the luck on lottery.
Finally, the popularity of buying lottery is due to the gap between the rich and poor. The income gap has become a reason for this activity. The rich becomes richer and richer, while the poor becomes poorer and poorer. This has stimulated some people to try the luck on the lottery.
To sum up, we should discourage people from buying the lottery. Meanwhile, we should better our social welfare system so that more people can get rich.
