In 1776 the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence stating the separation of the American colonies from Britain. The Declaration states traditional American values that were meant to define America forever. However, in the 1800’s some of these traditional principles, to an extent, were being reformed with new values and ideologies, such as Abolitionism, Feminism, Public Education, Prison Rehabilitation, Utopianism, and Nativism.

“Requiem for the American Dream,” a documentary arranged by Peter D. Hutchison, Kelly Nyks, and Jared P. Scott, features an MIT professor of linguistics, Noam Chomsky, who narrates the film on the topic of inequality, democratization, solidarity, and unjust systems of today’s economy.

Due to the changes in the economy and the unjust vicious cycle, Chomsky is passionate and persistent in informing American citizens of the problematic economic shifts, spurring from the ideologies of recent presidents. Furthermore, Chomsky informs the public about how these illusory changes, implemented by the government, are negatively impacting the unaware lower class.
