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?
