Capitalism is a system that allows people to move up in society and compete in an equal system. Can't get a job? Go back to school, Even if that means taking out some loans. Can't make enough money? Work harder and buy into mutual funds to increase revenue for the future. It's about working harder and smarter that makes the American Dream a reality. For those on the right column, Consider trying a side hustle, Work on your entrepreneurship skills. Or go back to school and become a teacher. Homeownership, Supporting a family and happiness is the key factors of the American Dream. Remember that and don't get too greedy.

Because the American Dream is an ethos that means that is changes and conforms based on the economy and the people. So when it was first established as a defined dream it may have been a little house with a family of four and a dog. However, this dream is not something that can be achieved especially with the modern day prices of things. Yet, I don't think that this is something that everyone wants anymore the younger generations views are mostly short-term and while this house and family may be an ideal it is no longer the reality. Our dream now is to grow up and be established, hold a steady job and pay off student loans eventually.
Yes, it isn't attainable to just anyone, you have to give it your all!! Have to be determined to obtain what you want. Its only gotten harder but, it will only get harder as the years past by. It still attainable but no one said it was easy!! Just keep going and ver give up
People achieve this dream every day. I am not saying it is easy or a guarantee but if you look around, there are millions of people who have good homes, and have enough to raise their family. Many, if not most of them came from much humbler beginnings and I am sure their path to success was not without hurtles or setbacks.
Thing is, hard work may not be enough. You may also have to make temporary sacrifices in order to achieve that goal. For instance, instead of spending your hard earned cash on something you don't need, save it so you can afford to further your education. If you get a well paying job, you could get a reasonable sized house and afford to support a family. If you continue to advance in your career, you could afford to not only save for your kids education but maybe trade-up to a better home, car, and better vacation time with your family. Who knows, you might just be the next Bill Gates or your kids may be the next Walton family. After all, Sam Walton started by working in a grocery store and today, his family combined has twice as much money as Gates.
Granted, you will likely hit many bumps in the road. You could loose your job for reasons that are not your own, you might have financial hardships that make saving money impossible at the time. Nobody said it would be easy but if you sacrifice having some things you want now, you have a much better chance at getting where you want to be in the future.
The American dream is not equally attainable, you can work hard your whole life and still end up with shit. Most people who get there started out in middle class or above families. And if you started lower than that it is possible but it takes a lot of good luck and you have to be fit for a good paying job.
Over the years, American's have had many dreams and goals that were never achieved. Many were personal ones, that came down to an individuals wants or needs, while others were national, that dealt with issues across the whole country. One major national example is racial discrimination. It is an issue that has lessened over the years due to increasing awareness on the seriousness of the issue, but it definitely still effects many of the nations citizens. People have tried and tried to change peoples' views and get them to understand the importance of the matter, but it's impossible to change everyones opinions, so people's ideas and values continue to clash and the ultimate goal of equality remains unreached. There are many other controversial nationwide hopes and dreams that have yet to have been obtained including gun control laws, physician-assisted suicide, and Illegal Immigration.
There are some people that are not even aloud to come into the United States and achieve the american dream but i personally do not believe that the american dream is achievable for everyone. Some people can achieve the american dream and that is great. But it is not available to everyone.
The American Dream is far out of reach for most. Only through good luck and extreme hard work can it be achieved. You can go to med school and make loads of money. But that occupation consumes your entire life, and you'll be in college until your thirties. Welp welp...
The "American Dream" was the idea of working hard and having a big home and a family and enough money to support them, but in today's society with low wages mixed with the struggling economy do you think it is still a possible thing to reach or a likely thing for most Americans to reach.
In most cases today people have to pay a bunch of money to get anywhere. Minumum wage pays very small. I can see how oractice makes perfect for sports but the equipment you need to buy can be very expensive for oracticising. The American Dream of four children, A white picket fence and a happy marriage is different to people who come from divorced families.

Almost all jobs have not kept up with inflation leading to companys paying less and making more whith increased prices on there products to keep up with inflation but our wages stay were there at companies are profiting more than ever while the working man is left with barely scraps and enough to make it by the middle class is almost gone this is largely to blame to the loss of many of the manufacturing jobs we once had and the ones we do have don't pay enough any more most only pay about13$ if your lucky 13$ an hour here in indiana in this economy that is a joke I am lucky to have a good paying factory job there are not many places like this left but we the people can stop this we can unite as 1 and tell these companies we will not stand for the low wage jobs any longer people are going to Be afraid to stand up because they will loose there job but the usa is the number 1 consomer for goods imagine what would happen to all these companies if they all left and we had no jobs or money most of them would probably collapses we need to let them know that just enough to scrape by is unacceptable because what's the point of living if you can't have a little extra money to go on vacation or go have fun with
Yes, you see many people achieving great wealth and success in today's society, but also note that most of them had always had a decent income. Take a company, for example. In today's society, entrepreneurs are taxed and regulated so much that it is almost impossible to survive without already having a decent income. Without a capitalist society, much of the success people see is based on their existing wealth.
