What matters most – the message or it’s delivery system?
Marshall McLuhan said the medium WAS the message and yep, I agree with him in the same fashion that hopping into a car or boarding a train actually means someone is going somewhere we want to go.
Once things are in motion we take our chances that we’ll actually achieve what we’ve initiated even though that conviction matters little to the outcome.
In this same fashion, professional gamblers don’t care for one second that the “house” is raking off 27 percent.
They work with the remaining 73 points. That’s a big enough playground for them.
Every clued-in gamester recognizes the inherent risks in any arena and fully comprehends that believing in equality is not only delusional but quite counterproductive.
They know that suckers are an abundant & hardy breed so the majority of their focus is on the game which takes care of itself and it’s caretakers.
And the system is more intelligent about the players than they are about themselves.
Making the noticers more worthy than them noticed.
Like a parade with no paraders.
Thank you, friend.
