This process is a tradition from beginning to end. The procedures, preparations, and history haven't been ammended at all in all the years the lottery has been in place. This detailed history shows us how easily and unquestioningly people hold onto tradition. The process was barbaric from the time of its inception, and yet no one had ever questioned or tried to stop it.
