Gambling has always received bad press, and often deservedly so. The harm caused by gambling demands a swifter and more effective response than it has generally received.
However, gambling per se is not problem gambling, and the best response to problem gambling is one that recognises and remains true to gambling's worthwhile purposes: recreation, social interaction and the opportunity for dreaming and hoping.
If today's gambling activities are to be humanly enriching and reasonable, the gambling industry needs to change how it sees itself.
