This Friday comes lottery hype to Teatro Real with suggestion of a symbol totemic. And as if accommodation between walls of Lyric temple brought solemnity to state's swindle. And as if Children Singers of San Ildefonso — boys and girls, of all races, in a covert dramaturgy — Revistieran of candor and purity an institutional larceny manifesto.
And does not aspire one to become Mr. Scrooge by failing psalmody of magic numbers or anaessia of benefactor's cabal, but it is advisable to disdeceive naive citizen of his hypnosis and expectation: Sepal, is not going to touch lottery.
And why won't he touch him, if angeloes of San Ildefonso, Pulquérrimos, unable to steal in brush, and not so in Carrefour, are distributing hyperbolically money number to number, hopper to Hopper, harnessing Euros similar to manna in wasteland?
It is not true that lottery falls in Leganés or in Valladolid, as is usually said in this tantalizing identification of city and administration that has distributed a number. The lottery does not fall very distributed, but very restricted. And lottery doesn't cover holes. That this is occupation of gravediggers. The lottery covers holes in state and ears of viewers.
We mention gravedigger and we appear to be Montoro. The Undertakerde a western film. The type Facineroso and lanky that takes advantage of stupor, feelings and faith milagrera ors to make box. Box we said. and box on December 22, extortion of award-winning few — it could be figures — with a voracious tax, added 20%.
Added because lottery is itself a collecting mechanism and a great pyramid scam that organizes state and that envelops State itself in propaganda of hope, illusion and superstition. It makes us dream of Spaniards as it made neighbors of Villar del Río dream of providential expectation of Mr. Marshall.
The state must be recognized for honesty of this issue. and publicity campaign. It doesn't lead to ambiguity. The lottery needs a supernatural stimulus to become flesh. He doesn't play lottery, but he has to pretend he does. The lottery thus degenerates in a cruel and immoral game. A Christmas Carol.
Because a story is placebo of lottery. The state instills it, recipe, imposes it, from a position of cultural, institutional, advertising abuse. And it encourages religion of gambling in a particularly gullible and miracle people, to extent that remedy to disappointment of anor year without reward — payout and reinstatement equals anorgasmia, to a prize of vacuous consolation — is blind trust in Child's lottery.
