Lotteries Are Bad Too many people are addicted to Lottery Games and we need to stop advertising them and allowing people to lose all their money. Americans have gambled away over $91 billion on Lotteries which is more than they spend on anything else (Gale). Lottery money goes to state treasuries, state governments, and so many other places. The people who play the most Lottery Games are the poorer people and they already do not have enough money. Lottery Games are negative because they affect test scores, make people lose their money, and they get people addicted to them to where they can not stop.
ETHICS Ethics is about people and it entails systematizing, defense and recommendation of concepts of right or wrong (Fieser, n.d). Therefore, ethics is about choosing what is right.

Furthermore, the advent of social media has upped the ante resulting in parenting feeling like a race to acquire the most awards and achievements. Lastly, the most prominent factor is the unbounded childhoods they experienced, in which many faced years of floundering without steady guidance and oversight and daily
They end up targeting the wrong market whenever they use this data. You find teenagers who have false years recorded by these social media apps receiving ads that are not age appropriate or people posting pictures depicting a lavish lifestyle yet their income is modest. Advertisers end up losing millions of dollars in failed advertising.

‘television consumes as much of children’s time as interacting with parents’ (Macionis and Plummer, 2009 pg 15) this shows the major role the mass media plays in our everyday lives. The media can also have a negative impact on our lives as it is peppered with articles about celebrity diets and glamour which could result in people of every age group feeling self-conscious.
