The Major League Baseball organization sparked controversy over the weekend when officials announced that the MBL would be pulling its All-Star Game out of Atlanta due to a new voting law that has sparked a major debate over its impact on voting rights.
The legalization and growth of online gambling has coincided with the legalization of recreational marijuana. This is no coincidence. After all, laws are mostly downstream from the larger culture, and these laws do far more to expand personal license. Rather, they reflect and reinforce an unmistakable message, especially to young men, to aim low, to think short-term thoughts about life and the world, to pursue immediate gratification, and to not aspire to too much.
