The American Dream

“If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers, and artists, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule: That was the American dream.”

Edward Abbey

Now we relegate ourselves to be professional consumers who grudgingly toil to increase the status of those we will never really know.  We will argue, sometimes to the death, to keep “our” side of the elite, empowered over our every freedom.
