American Dream

12.1 American Dream Text: ' the American Dream' by James Truslow Adams In this text, Adams warns that the American Dream shouldn´t be misunderstood.It´s not a dream of motor cars and high wages, but a dream of a 'social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable'. He warns that people should be recognize for what they are and not for their wealth.He says, life is not only about technological progress+personal riches In his opinion some things have to be done and some have to be avoided in the future. what have to be done is: all people need to strive for a high communal,spritual+intellectucal life. Those on top,financially,intellectually or otherwise must devote themselves to the attainment of the ' Great Society '. Those who are below in the scale must strive to rise,not only economirally,but culturally.All members of the community have to work together, no longer to build bigger, but to build better. But all people also need to avoid any development through which they might become stark realists.People need to avoid becoming once more class-conscious+struggle as individuals or classes against one another and giving themselves up as individuals to selfishness,physical comfort and cheap amusement.Nobody must mistake more quantity with qualitiy Text: A Nation of Immigrants Before the 19th century, Pilgrim Fathers had come toAmerica and the contribution to the American Way of Life is Thanksgiving.

The Jews,persecuted by the nazis, had a priority for entry and won´t received. Also large numbers of immigrants from Indochine,Vietnam,Cuba came to the Us, but in the beginning the assimilation was difficult, but in the end they became typical Americans and opened businesses and were owner of small houses. Then Spanish-speaking immigrants from cental and South Africa came to the US,some legally,some illegally.People were suspicious+frightened that a Latino culture will ' overpower' Americans culture in the south.

He divides war in two different forms. Fist there are the traditional wars in which enemy fights against enemy and people see the results of war, for instance dead people and destroyed houses. But nowadays there is a new form of war.These wars are perfectly planned, cameras were at the scene so that the viewers ( the whole world) could see it. In the text Morrow deals with the terror attcks on the world trade center. His message he wants the reader to realize and understand is that people should fight against terrorism. The new Colossus (American Dream) This poem critisies old England. Arrogant people aren´t welcome, but all people who need help, people who have to go to Exiles are welcome. The torch and light shows that everyone is welcome. The Statue of Liberty is compared with the Colossus of Rhodes. The cartoon shows how history has changed completely. Poor people aren´t welcome anymore, only money is important, so America´s attitude has changed.
