"Could we have survived for all these years if the information we're providing these players isn't helping?"

Why certainly! People are basically idiots! Casinos rake in billions. People believe the crap these guys are publishing and 20% believe the lottery is the path to wealth!

That's pretty much what I thought, except I wasn't thinking about casinos. It's pretty funny hearing that from people whose publications are about a form of gambling that generally returns only 50 cents on the dollar. Last I knew, cigarettes were still selling pretty well, and the best you can hope for as a smoker is that cigarettes will make your teeth brown and your breath stink,  but not kill you. A substantial percentage of people who are rich got rich because their customers are fairly far out on the left side of the bell curve.

      National Lottery is a good idea. It may not ever happen, but to fund these disasters? The thing about the U.S. is that we are far too concerned with what everybody else is doing and we don't take care of our own. It's pretty apparent. I wish that the U.S. would take care of its own citizens instead of everyone else. That would also prevent other countries always thinking we make everything out business. The same countries that slam the U.S. for always interfering are also those that have their hands out when they have their own crises.
