Reply To: The American Dream?


Point is well taken, Jufa. Of course, you are using “myth” in the popularly understood sense of a lie, rather than the way Joseph Campbell employs the term (as metaphor for a deeper truth).

Your words ring true. That is why, when teaching secondary school students, I would point out that “the American Dream” is more an aspiration than a fact; though we have fallen far short of the American Dream, it is a direction and destination worth pursuing.
