9. suckered into the game
We got suckered into a game: the "free market" game where everyone believes they are 1 step away from getting rich by (insert favorite one here) playing the stock market, lotto etc.

It's a game that's rigged to take our money and turn us into slaves. And people think its "the best system" it the world.

Some of us are waking up finally, not sure if it will be too late.
