In my country, almost every one hope to run the risk of the American Dream!
I've though a lot about this matter. And i've realised the existance of numerous contradictions.
Why do the majority of youth in today's word seek to hit the road to USA ? That's beacause it's that tough to succeed in their native countries ? Or, usa really does provide with success ingridients that are running out in other counties ?
i honestly havent grasped this phenomenon yet!
I agree with Phil:
American dream nowadays has become a state of mind which means you can build up your "American dream" at some other countries despite it appears unlikely to do so in certain countries in deep distress and ravaged by civil wars. As the world becomes flatter with less boundaries to restrain, people in their countries should be easier to contact much more abundant information from internet and there are more possibility for them to contact foreigners which are hardly expected 30 years ago.
Anyway, dream is worhty to pursue by ACTION
It is better to see what USA is being at present before you are fulfilling an American dream. I suppose America is not so good as it was but surely anyone has the freedom of dreaming. Aside from that, dreaming is none other than a dream and you have to discover avenue to fulfill it.
In addition, you can take time to investigate if Australia is an alternative to pursue your dream supposing you consider move to another country to have better life quality.
