Random deluded musings (another post in a very occasional series)

Casinos are the sewerage system of urban capitalism – a necessary (on balance) centralised place for receiving capitalism’s waste-product*. The alternative to mass-patron casinos is for individuals to bury their own fiscal waste-product*, but beyond a certain level of population density, this is too unwieldy, or unhygienic.

Casino gaming-floor employees are therefore the greatest unsung workers in the world. They stand, necessarily, always looking up into the waste-chute* of capitalism.

* Insert your own earthier nouns here, if you prefer.

DISCLOSURE: Paul Watson was a croupier at Crown Casino Melbourne in 1998-99.
