What does ‘The American Dream’ mean to you?
The American Dream means to me that a whole society has subscribed to an architype that is virtually unatainable. It means we are a culture who inacurrately prides ourselves on creativity, uniqueness, and the freedom to live our lives to our individual standards of happiness while holding ourselves to a standard that is anything but. It means we are a society that has opted to present ourselves to the world as Ward and June Cleaver just to find our self defeating ideology causes more harm than good. It means we are a society who openly accepts virtual reality as oppose to reality and shows no signs of waivering regardless of the emotional toll it takes on each of us as individuals and as a culture.
