The incredible is never founded on more of the same.

What's the American Dream? Is it the desire to get filthy rich, the longing for money, power, influence? To pull one up from one's bootstraps and fulfill one's potential? To escape despotism or poverty and live freely? To get married and have two and a half children and a little house in the suburbs? Maybe it's the possibility of chasing the life we want to live, or the ideal of being who we are, unbridled by whatever would stop us from such fulfillment. What should it be? What do we want it to be?

To do that, join the mafia.

To pull one up from one's bootstraps and fulfill one's potential?
Heck, no.

To escape despotism or poverty and live freely?
Not in America anymore.

To get married and have two and a half children and a little house in the suburbs?
No, that's just real life.

Maybe it's the possibility of chasing the life we want to live, or the ideal of being who we are, unbridled by whatever would stop us from such fulfillment.
Or maybe it's to fall into a life that we'd never suspect existed. Like an amish computer repairman lifestyle.
