NC Policy Watch is a FAR left outfit here in North Carolina. How far left? Close enough to Pol Pot that they could have lunch together, but the ghost of Ted Kennedy would need a telescope to watch them.
NC Policy Watch, in an unprecedented moment of agreement with Civitas, a conservative pro-business organization, thinks we should get rid of the state lottery. Why? You’re going to love this.
Popular as the lottery might be, it is slowly but surely transforming how citizens view their government. Government is no longer seen as a trusted and respected friend and watchdog for the common good; it is an adversary like any other giant corporation that must be bargained with and dealt with warily.
You mean that the lottery is teaching citizens that it is a vast leviathan that will take everything they have and crush them like a little bug?
Around here I call that “Truth in Advertising.”
