The American dream Is now nothing more than a past dream haunting humanity of what could’ve been. Though man y people are living that dream it reminds us of the dirty tricks they used to cheat others to achieve their status. This so called dream is no longer real it is nothing more than a figment of the past. No matter how hard people may try to restore it always leads to the same ending: pure uncut disappointment.
One of the main things that remind the always encouraged middle class are “n. N-the-ground realities that impede middle class status… ” (Samuelsson). It reminds us how we have to pay more because the poor have nothing to pay and the rich are scum who think of themselves as gods in our society.
