What dreams we are talking about? Why we are talking about it? Dreams are never constant and never will be. My parent's dream were to have a simple life and to provide their children a decent education so that they could get a job with respectable pay. People of my age group at modern time dream in a different way.
Social, economic and political situation in America is changing as well as whole world is changing. it is interconnected world. since its inception America has been cause and effect of world dynamic then surely American dreams are bound to change. It's not time of funeral its time to gear up for new challenges and new changes( good or bad only time will tell)
American dream is to own 2 cars, take vacation around the world, nice house, safer neigborhood and sent all your kids to college.
Fox news promoting American dream is dead. They blame other poor country taking american jobs due slave labor oversea? They are blaming immigrant coming to american take jobs and they blame they lower their wages?
You can't blame the immigrant they want to make money as much they can? They want a better life for their future children.
Well, what can i say then? they should read OECD and World Bank reports if they can believe that omitting fact does not change reality.
American dreams start with being an entrepreneur. rest is just consequences of their innovative ideas and ventures. When were Americans not dependent on immigrants for their high tech industry to their low paying manual jobs? Well this discussion is turning political.There i rest my case.
