The American Dream. Our founding fathers envisioned it as one of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, as well as freedom of religion, freedom from the oppression of government and the freedome to build a better future for one's family.
Their "dream" has been replaced by one based on rampant materialism funded by excess debt and accumulation of wealth by means other than hard work and savings.
There is no doubt that our country is preoccupied with material well-being, but lest we think that the problem is solely economic, we must look deeper. Documenting historical changes in the American Dream, Larry Burkett demonstrates clearly that the problems we face are not related exclusively to the debt and deficit. The debt, he says, is merely a symptom of a much greater issue-deteriorating value system of our nation, a decline that began during World War I with the importation of "amoral" values from the European communities.
