As human beings, we are deeply influenced by society and societal factors. We are not people who are simply individualistic and separate, but since the conception of time, humans have been deeply linked to and motivated by other individuals along with a myriad of other societal elements. The purpose of this essay is to fully discuss Mills’ (1959) ‘sociological imagination’, to present the addiction to gambling as a personal family ‘trouble’, and then to discuss and argue how this personal addiction connects to and is shaped by larger societal structures. Additionally, the potent value of the ‘sociological imagination’ will be assessed.
In “The Lottery”, people have to draw names. The last person that gets their name drawn gets stoned to death. This has been a tradition for years and it happens once a year. The reason they do this is because they think that doing the lottery will help their crop season. The theme in this story is sometimes you have to sacrifice something to get something good.
The discrimination against aboriginals has unfortunately been a part of Canadian society since we can remember. Even though the aboriginal peoples owned and inhabited these lands long before us, they are being discriminated against and Gerber’s (2014) research finds that aboriginals are found at the bottom in terms of level of education and income. This is not the only form of discrimination Aboriginals experience; the most discrimination occurs in schools and at work (Currie, Wild, Schopflocher, Laing & Veugelers 2012). Aboriginals can equally find themselves are at high risk of addictive behaviors such as gambling, which is caused by post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms after experiencing
In the New York Times article Legalize and Regulate Sports Betting by Adam Silver, he proposes that gambling should be allowed on all professional sports events. Silver, who is the commissioner of the National Basketball Association uses solid evidence to justify his proposition.
In today’s society, winning the lottery would bring great joy to someone hence the word “winning” which is usually considered something positive but in the story “The Lottery”, winning the lottery isn’t exactly a win. The story takes place on a nice sunny day in a small village packed with families that are fairly close. Annually, all people inhabiting the village gather together and hold the lottery which is a tradition where there are as many slips as there are families, one having a black dot on it. One by one the head of each household draws a slip not daring to peek at it until directed to do so. After each family has drawn their slip to fate, the family with the black dot must then draw again, but this time each member of the family draws a slip with only one having the black dot on it. The family member that draws the black dot must then be stoned to death by the rest of the village in belief that their sacrifice will increase their crop share. In “The Lottery”, old man Warner even says, “Lottery in June corn be heavy soon.”
The Lottery is a story by Shirley Jackson. It is about a town that has a type of stoning event called the lottery. It is basically like gambling with your life. Each person has to pull out a slip of paper out of a black box. There are enough slips for each member of the town. It is like a process of elimination. First, each person draws a slip. If a person pulls a slip of paper with a black dot on it, that family has to each pull a slip. The person that pulls a slip with a black dot on it (from the family) has to be stoned to death. So in the end, one person must die. Traditions should not be blindly followed.

Lottery is a form of gambling that gives players a chance to win enormous amounts of money. Winning the lottery is about a one in 14 million chances. Having such a low chance, as stated above, it does not mean that it is impossible for a person to win the lottery. With tremendous luck, a person could win and acquire immense happiness. However, winning such a grand prize does not ensure joy as it has several chains of consequences. To illustrate, a hypothetical story will show the effects of two young friends that won one million dollars from a lottery card. Although the two friends won the lottery, their happiness will deteriorate; their excitement occurs first, then comes their change of heart, and finally, the consequences of their corruption
Should casino gambling be prohibited? My standing on this topic is Yes, casino gambling should be prohibited. I believe that it should be prohibited because it has several negative effects.

Since the beginning of organized sport, there has been gambling on a broad variety of activities, whether legal or illegal, and that is the issue.

But in reality that 's not the case at all, the school looks nice, in actuality it can 't afford books, great food, clean water or even enough desks.
