The American Dream

The American dream signifies the hope that one’s lifestyle can be improved and that following generations will share even greater success than that of their parents. But the American dream often does not mirror the American reality. Though the ideals persist, many people in the United States today feel that they are denied the fruits of the American dream. To them, equal opportunity is a myth. Factors such as race, gender, ethnicity, age, education, and economic status divide the population and deter some segments from achieving the success of their fellow citizens. In a nation built on the premise that all men are created equal, few men and women seem to enjoy the benefits of the equality.



Equality can never be achieved.
Be it in race, gender, age or class.
Humans, afterall has limitations.
Thus Nothing is fair.
The law is lopsided.
Justice can never be fully carried out.


But one thing that you can be sure about, the sky is blue everywhere...

it is difficult to be fair even as a communist. Utopia is impossible because of innumerable circumstances. :( i suppose its how you fight for your piece of the sky and be happy with it.
