Is it just me or does the very idea of a single person winning such a ridiculous amount of money seem so WRONG? Hearing the news about some recently
retired, 62 year old woman, from Smalltown, USA banking 500 mil makes my stomach turn. I mean, don't get me wrong, if I happened to be the "big
winner", I'm sure I would have no problem with it whatsoever. But, not being so lucky, I do have a problem with it.
Would it not be much better to have 500 one million dollar winners? Imagine how many feelgood stories would come out of that. How many lives that
would change. A million dollars to a family so far in debt that they can't see straight, would mean the world to them.
So, the way I see it, the difference between having 1 new multi-millionaire or 500 new millionaires would be enormous. I'm thinking that this
scenario, in fact, would be about... oh, let me do the math.... 500 X BETTER.
And i'm no expert on the subject, but wouldn't the spreading out of that money also be good for the economy? At the rate we currently are giving
out these huge jackpots, we would see an enormous amount of money being spent. Throughout the country, an influx of US dollars being redistributed
back into our economy. A cash flow with currency being used and spent instead of just sitting in some bank or in an old shoebox in the back of a
I just think having multiple winners would be better for so many reasons. It just makes so much sense and seems so obvious.
But then you stop to think about the monetary dispersion in regards to social status and the current class system within the United States. Along
with the simple equation: Money = Power. Now it all begins making sense.
Its a tough pill to swallow that something so simple that could possibly have so much benefit to the needy and struggling. From the lower to the
middle class (about 99%) of this country, something so obvious.. will NEVER happen.
