The main conflict in Jackson’s narrative, “The Lottery” is that a community is unable to rid itself of a horrible and unnecessary tradition because it is afraid of change. The townspeople continue to hold its annual lottery which involves the sacrificing of a person from the village, as they believe that this will ensure another year of their prosperity. This is shown when Old Man Warner, a respected elder of the community, ridicules those people from other towns who have retired this tradition. He says, “‘Pack of crazy fools… nothing is good enough for them. Next thing you know, they’ll be wanting to go back to living in caves… Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.’” By railing against those people who have stopped conducting the lottery, Warner demonstrates his town’s belief that holding to the traditions, especially the lottery, is essential to ensuring the village survives the coming year. They do not understand that sacrificing one of their own will do nothing to change the fate of their community, and cannot see how anyone would be so careless as to depart from this ritual. But, those who have discontinued the lottery realize that it is ridiculous to believe that killing one of their own will ensure a good harvest.

  It seems that these people could do other things to better ensure their prosperity. Since they are so concerned about their crop yields, they could send members of their community to land –grant colleges to study agriculture. These individuals could learn the latest farming techniques, return home and teach others in the community these things. They could also invest money in buying better equipment and improving the town’s infrastructure. Public works projects like dams and reservoirs would make irrigation more efficient and protect their crops during a drought. They could also encourage community members to stay current in their reading of agricultural literature, as knowledge is the real key to prosperity.
