TEC debate motion "There should be no legal restrictions on gambling" Not a clear cut case... far from it!
Typically a debate I'm not able to vote in.
The reason being there is certainly much more to the topic than I could ever master without relevant background reading.
Will leave a few short questions drawing attention to what exactly is meant by "... no legal restrictions":
Is it supposed to spell that the gambling business should be a free-for-all, an entirely lawless economic activity?
Not even a general legal framework or the semblance of one?
Or is gambling to be considered as inherently legal because it's been around long enough and cannot be bound up in any way?
Perhaps senseless doubts aside gambling has been the mainstay of many economies around the world earning substantial revenue for local governments.
