Here is the text on the American Dream

What is the American dream?

The American dream is the notion that the American social, economic, and political system makes

success possible for every individual . Someone who manages to achieve their version of the American dream is said to be « living the dream ».Many people criticize the idea of the American dream because they say that it is impossible for everyone to be able to fulfil their dreams – there are still  inequalities in class, race, religion and ethnicity preventing people from « living the dream ».

The idea of the American dream is older than the USA itself – it dates back to the 1600s, when people began to have hopes for what was a  new and largely unknown continent to European immigrants.

People dreamt of owning land and establishing a prosperous business and hoped that this would make them happier .Today the definition of the American dream is much different . Most people nowadays hope that they will get married , have two children and live in a three- bedroom traditional home . Rather than looking for great wealth or success, people hope to  avoid poverty or loneliness.
