In regards to the American Dream in America, US citizens hold their dreams near and dear to their hearts, but neglect to advocate for the dreams of their fellow Americans. In an excerpt from writer James Truslow Adams, he articulates his thoughts on the American dream, he states: That dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper class to interpret adequately, and too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. In relationship to Hansberry’s work, this is most represented through the character of Karl Lindner, the neighborhood council for improvement representative of the Youngers future home and community. His visit to the youngers provided nothing short of a demonstration of bigotry and insult.
The Harlequin was known for his rebellious, playful ways. The Harlequin believed in justices and that everyone shouldn’t have to be on time for everything. People should make their own decisions instead of being told what to do al the time. It states that “’Repent, Harlequin!’ Said the Ticktockman” shatters the theory that increasing attention to timetables and efficient human motion not only would improve productivity but also would improve the quality of life. Instead, the resulting society reduces people to mindless robots marking time to an oppressive government’s regimented schedules.” (May).
This doesn’t mean however that the millennials are narcissists who are interested only in their personas.

Transcendental ideals are relevant to transcendentalists, but no longer valued in modern American life; transcendentalists are against materialism and hierarchies in society, whereas modern American life is built on hierarchies and the unremitting desire to acquire more and live a garish lifestyle. Transcendentalists live minimally, while most modern Americans strive to be successful and gain as much as possible. There is nothing wrong with pursuing success and wealth, but many transcendentalists see that type of lifestyle as monotonous and insignificant. Due to the hunt for prosperity and materials in modern America, transcendentalism is no longer relevant. In today’s society, there are numerous structures that are relied on to keep America
The American Dream is so essential to our country as it is an honor to reach your goals and make it a reality. The American Dream is the national ethos that people’s lives would be better and more abundant with many opportunities. The American Dream was more accessible to attain back in the days, however, changed over the years. Although the “American Dream” is still possible, many people, minorities are affected by the lack of improvement in social mobility in our society. The American Dream is still alive by being able to live a middle-class lifestyle and by obtaining it through perseverance and hard-work.
Free College Tuition From Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders believes that college tuition isn’t in the interest for our country’s future. Bernie Sanders states “It is insane and counter-productive to the best interests of our country and our future, that hundreds of thousands of bright young people cannot afford to go to college” (Bernie). Bernie Sanders’ point is that many of the talented people in our society may not be able to pursue their dreams or pursue their desired job because they and their parents can’t afford college. If Bernie Sanders is right that many Americans can’t afford to go to college, as I think they are, then we need to reassess the popular belief that FAFSA and other scholarships will considerably lower the price for college.
When Yezierska said, “There had been no end to my day - working for an ‘American’ family” (19) she was saying how Americans don’t treat immigrants like equals. Immigrants have a harder time in the U.S. because they have to start with nothing and work their way up. Most when the get here can’t even speak English so it is very difficult for them to get jobs. The younger people arrive in the United States the better they are off. Some immigrants know how hard it is to start new in America and know it will get better the longer they are here, while others think everything will come easy until they face
Today, nothing can function without respect. Respect is the glue to our society without it our world would be a mess. To respect someone means to feel a deep admiration for someone because of their abilities. If no one had respect, we would not have a healthy and great nation like we have today. Respect makes people feel safe, confident, disciplined, and loyal.
It not only concerns his family that he sees his human worth out of money, but it worries them because they are not able to trust him to be responsible and just when making decisions. While the Younger family wants to own a house and receive a stronger income, Walter is the only one who obsesses over it and allows it to alter the ways in which he treats important people in his life. Segregation caused dreams to become deferred, and weights were put onto the families during the 1950s. Due to segregation, they could not afford what white families could, and this was because they were paid less in the workforce. “How sweet it would be if I found I could fly.
One of the biggest reasons nativists’ don’t want immigrants here is that they’re afraid that immigrants will take over. We could help by trying to explain to people that immigrants are not here to take over. Again, immigrants are not bad for the economy. Many people don't believe this, but immigrants create more jobs than take them. Most immigrants are also not here to cause danger.
However it is also important that the decision a person makes is the decision he/she wants because each individual needs to be him or herself. Americans are people who are not afraid of being themselves and being different. People who can’t be themselves “very naturally [compete] for attention and for affection...by trying to imitate” (444). True Americans are themselves and only themselves. Being individuals and a unique is a large piece of America’s pride.
He says that putting American workers first is the most important thing. Many Americans support both candidates but the one that wins will have to make important decisions to best benefit the nation and try to make all of the people in the country as happy as
In this current society, people think that money and power is everything which is not true. That is why Eden 370 believes in everyone getting respected and treated equally.

The United States government may claim they are trying for everyone to get a job, an insurance, and a home, but in reality, they only help out certain people like the wealthier starting from like the high middle class people. For this reason, in Eden 370, everyone must work hard for what they want.
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” By Emma Lazarus (1883). No undocumented person should be treated as a criminal. Undocumented immigrants arise in the United States due to the lack of opportunities in their homeland, and they know America is a nation where a dream can become real. Those individuals willingly perform jobs that nearly all Americans refuse to do; they are reliable people, pay taxes, and help America’s economy. Yet, should undocumented immigrants be granted a path to citizenship?
Most Americans eligible to vote obtain a full time job and simply can not find the time to vote. Although the voting may not take a long time, the process of registering persuades some citizens to avoid the voting process. The process of registering and voting may demand too much time for the American public. As pathetic and detrimental as that may sound, the mindset of new
