What is the American dream?

Do your best to define it, and how well you think America is living up to it.

I'm not interested in debating your definitions, I'm just interested in knowing what they are.

Thanks in advance.

To you Direckshun, whatever it is, it's not supposed to be handed over to everyone by the federal govt by taking from others. It's not just supposed to be a level playing field by the govt but a neutral one by the feds as well.

Also, the American Dream doesn't mean everyone is equal nor is it implied they should be. It's simply allows each individual to pursue happiness which includes accomplishments and success on their own without any guarantees by the federal govt--or any other govt.

Seriously though, being independent and providing for yourself and your loved ones. Leaving the people around you better for having known you.

The first part of the American dream is physical: being able to raise your family with access to food, shelter, medical care, and a baseline education. Anything beyond that or with high quality is up to you based on your efforts and talents.


The second part is the freedom to say and think whatever you like. That, of course, no longer exists. Sadly.

It is something different for everyone.

Most people searching for the American dream never find it.

To live stress free and to be able to live while engaging in self expression. Work should be a choice. And what I earn should be shared with love and affection to those who are less fortunate than I. Free time should be mandated so that I have opportunities to explore new ideas and interact with many and diverse people and beliefs. We should engage each other without risks and if things go wrong we should have a social safety net and not be shunned for our behaviors and outcomes.

I think many have. Even if it's just to be left alone by the govt.

The ability to succeed, by whatever measure you choose, better than your predecessors. The want that those who come after you do the same. The drive for growth, intellectually, spiritually (again, by whatever definition you may believe), and morally. The knowledge that every moment of our existence, we are trying to fine tune this living experiment in order to perfect what our ancestors began. The dream that ideas, many times, are far more important than traditions without examination. The continuous movement toward a "more perfect union" between millions of people with divergent mores, ethics, beliefs, lifestyles, and functions.
