United States of America Bearbeiten
American Dream Bearbeiten
to the USA and start a new life where no one cares about your background
nor your history. It gives you the chance to start over, to create a
new life for yourself and your family. Everyone has to work together to achieve the American Dream and there is no competition (James Truslow). "From rags to riches", describes the attitude which is supposed to be shown through the American Dream.
lot of people think it is alive and well. For them the American Dream is
about to justice, equality and freedom. You have the right to speak
your opinion and stand up for what you believe in. The American Dream falls into two categories, one of them is the Pot of Gold. This describes the material dream people are aiming for. They want wealth, material excess and prosperity. They want a home, where they are safe. Another thing they want is properties. They want to be able to say that something belongs to them. The American Dream was made for immigrants to
come to the US. But nowadays the American Dream is not only for
immigrants but also for native Americans. For everyone who dreams of coming to the US and achieving a goal. The motto of the American Dream is that you have to work hard to prosper and that everyone can make it as long as they have the will to work hard.
which deals with the feelings the American Dream fulfills, such as equality, justice and freedom as previously mentioned. But it is not just that. It is about the ability to look at yourself in a critical way
and to criticize your government. Americans have a "we can do anything" attitude which helps them sustain their positive way of thinking.
in a safe neighbourhood with a yard and various possessions, the
Americans who already possess a small house dream of something bigger. They want a big house which stands out from all of the others and which shows their upper class status. Another dream that many Americans have is to start a family or to expand it.
the great migration. In the 1800s a lot of immigrants took Columbus as
their example and decided that the wage they earned in their home country was not enough anymore, it was not " good to be poor" any longer
and with promises from friends and relatives, they packed up their
meager possessions and moved to the US with the dream of a better, richer and fuller life in mind. Many immigrants, especially Puerto Ricans, went to New York to start a new life. They came from countries such as San Juan, Haiti, Mexico, San Dominico, Jamaica and many more. At
the time of the great migration, a lot of immigrants went west and
populated at first 39 states but nowadays there are immigrants in every state in the USA and they even have their own societies. In New York, immigrants who reached and maintained a high social position created a society for their brothers who had failed to fulfill the American Dream.
there was no way for the Hispanics to come to the US, that's why the US army made sure that there was a way of transportation for them right before the war ended.
job market is booming there are more immigrants. If the amount of jobs is decreasing the migration curve lessens. But a key factor which has to be remembered is that for a lot people, Americans and immigrants, is that the American Dream is corrupted, dead and may even be called a nightmare.
Age. It was all about material excess and prosperity. The social and moral values changed completely for the population during that period; cynicism, greed and money were more important. It was the time where alcohol flowed in masses and parties were a casualty. The soldiers, who fought in the war, came back to a hypocritical America where there were no more moral or social values. The economy led to material prosperity and material excesses and it was possible for everyone to become rich riding the wave of industrialism - as long as one worked hard enough. The class difference between the old rich and the new rich made it impossible to live in harmony. The old rich or the "aristocrat rich" always looked down on the Nouveau rich. The Nouveau rich lacked class, they were tacky, showed off their wealth, but what the new rich lacked in class, they had in heart. This is something that the old rich could not claim.
used to be about opportunities, equality, justice, the chance to make it
in the US, going through an adventure and truly finding yourself.
Nowadays it is only about earning money and stepping over people to make
as much money as possible. Even Obama himself says that the American
Dream is fading because of the upward mobility, which itself is shrinking, The gap between the rich and the poor is getting too big. Racial and sexual discrimination is getting stronger. Obama is trying to
focus on the lower class who needs the chance to achieve the American
Dream, while the upper class has basically already achieved it in the perspective in which we look at the American Dream nowadays.
