When Mr. and Mrs. Adams quietly point out that the ritual of the lottery has been given up in nearby communities and is being considered in another, Old Man Warner's rejection of this idea is hyperbolic.  He calls the other communities a "pack of crazy fools," and conjectures "next thing you know, they'll be wanting to go back to living in caves, nobody work any more..." Giving up a barbaric and terrifying ritual with an unexplained and likely superstitious rationale can hardly be reasonably equated with abandoning civilized living and finding purpose in life.
