JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: “THE AMERICAN DREAM” IS AN ADVERTISING SLOGAN COMING TO THE END OF ITS USEFUL LIFE – LIKELY NEVER WAS A SLOGAN MORE ABUSED AND UNWARRANTED   Leave a comment

“GOOD-BY AMERICAN DREAM”

Sorry, but the expression “American Dream’ was never anything but an advertising slogan.

Yes, America for a while was a place like no other for making money and raising your status, but that has been over for a while.

Only with the complete flattening of all competitors in WWII did it have any meaning, but that time is over.

Competitors of every kind are now developing around the world.

The slogan can never have the same meaning.

Of course, a regrettable side effect of using this slogan was applying it to all things American, including its corrupt and not-very-democratic political system as though it were somehow responsible for all the bounties that were truly just the result of good luck.

When the phrase dies a natural death, it won’t be missed by anyone but ideologues and morons.
