In this episode, we raise the stakes on our prohibition series by discussing a vice lesser-known to be prohibited: gambling. Gambling has a rich history in many regions of the world, but one thing is consistent: some form of betting is illegal in almost every country on the planet. But why? Why are some games permissible, but others not? Let’s take a look!

Gambling has been demonized by churches, governments and political movements in some form since the first lot that was cast. But the truth is, there’s nothing aggressive or dangerous about making wagers and taking risks. The fact that gaming is still illegal in some places shows that we have a long way to go to achieve human freedom. If you would like to fight back, abstain from participation in state-run lotteries, find ways to gamble online, and support the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
These are just a few examples of Peaceful Treason.
