The American Dream stands for a richer, fuller and better life. It gives everyone opportunities based on their skills.
The American Dream aims for a Greater Society. Everyone can come
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.
For many people it seems as if the American Dream is dead, but a
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.
Besides the Pot of Gold theory, there is the Rainbow Pot theory
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.
While for the immigrants the American Dream is to possess a house
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 American Dream was basically developed during the time of
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.
During the World War the job market was booming in the US, but
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.
The migration curve always depends on the job rates, if the
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
The disintegration of the American Dream started in the Jazz
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
The morals of the American Dream have completely changed, it
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.
