Letters on Liberty: Risking It All: the freedom to gamble
Jon Bryan argues that a crackdown on gambling should worry us all, as our liberties could easily be fluttered away by politicians and pundits alike. Whether you are a fan of the slot machine or not, the freedom to spend our money as we see fit is worth defending – such powers should not be granted to the state, or to a third party acting on the state’s behalf. He argues that re-asserting the ability of individuals to make their own choices, and to have the capacity to do so whatever the consequences, is vital in our defence of freedom.
