|Family values champion William Bennett has admitted that he indeed has a gambling problem that has cost him millions over the past ten years. But now, Bennett says that his gambling is behind him and reflects on the past stating “I have done too much gambling, and this is not an example I wish to set”.|
The admission from Bennett, the author of the ‘Book of Virtues’ prompts the philosophical minded to ask themselves whether gambling too much is in fact a moral wrongdoing. Gambling is in fact licensed in some form in 48 states, it is a past time enjoyed by millions of people worldwide, and is certainly less dangerous than an addiction to French fries at a fast food chain. In fact, Bennett himself concludes this point of view when he succinctly stated “I adhere to the law. I don't play the milk money. I don't put my family at risk, and I don't owe anyone anything”.
The is no record of Bennett gambling online to date, and the records of his gambling activity terrestrially are all in compliance to US federal regulation regarding the reporting of gambling win.
