The american dream

Representation of the American dream

Values, "Life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement regardless of social class or circumstances of birth." - James Truslow, easy word, determination, cairage (=courage), material wealth, equal opportunity, everyone can become rich, freedom, to do what you want, to succeed in your domain

It's, The possibility to make your dreams come true, even if it's difficult to archieve, The possibilty to succeed, even if you are a "nobody", To have lot of money, a nice family, a nice car, a big house, a dog in a beautiful garden, Pic 1 : Young woman (big house, nice car) -> embodies the AD. Young has everything they want/ we can dream of. She is holding a gun/weapon (represents the security), Pic 2 : Perfect people, with perfect love in a perfect life, full of luck and wealth. They seem to be happy., Pic 3 : - farmer picking apples on the three : important crop in a huge orchard with beautiful landscape in the background. - shows abundance and profusion of the American lands and wealth of USA. - beautiful landscapes : with the great Canyon., A other pic :, the rocket represents the technological advances of USA and the force they have in the universe, the differents cars are the symbol of weakth of the US population, "DUZ DOES EVERYTHING" is too about tue wealth of american people, the military represebts military strength of USA in the world and the secure of USA, The man who is eating a ice cream with the beautiful woman represents the perfect love story, the young girl is the symbol of the perfect family, the perfect amercan dscent, the perfect education

Differents faces of AD (avec les chansons)

Everything isn't perfect in the AD : discriminations against immigrants (awful living conditions, they have to stay among themselves, they have less opportunities, less well paid (= bien payƩ))

USA is a wealthy country, strond industrie, powerful economy, country of freedom, people cab be everything they want

people who believe in the AD are too selfish, behavior led by money without thinking about people around them

Behind the american dream

the AD says that everyone is equal and has the same right to strive for (se battre pour) his luck (cad equal opportunities). But in reality people won't to be succesful if they to lower classes, a kid with rich parents have more chance to succeed because he has a good education (good schools are very expensive)

The AD isn't as popular as in the past today more difficult to have success

problems with guns because no control of guns, much more mass murders than in other countries

economi crisis : people lose their job, can't to pay the banks (lose house, cars ...), news report : living tunnels
