The order created the lottery because it is a great way to give the masses some kind of reward and something to look for if they have not been able to find financial success. The irony about the lottery is that all that it does is make people lazy instead of making them work hard to accomplish their goals. A lot of humans out there are expecting to simply win the lottery one day and this is all they think about when it comes to finding success.
The lottery is a necessary evil because there is nothing but the hope of winning it for some people and this keeps their restlessness from reaching a boiling point. The number of people who rely on being able to win the lottery someday is truly alarming. The very few lucky people that do win the lottery have their lives changed forever. To the order this means nothing but entertainment for the masses.
