The American Dream

The American Dream

"The American Dream" today is based on an individuals personal achievement . Symbolizes freedom and equality to every American. Although, in the 1920s the American Dream was simply someone living who had money. Either you were born into the "American Dream" or married into the American Dream.  Your material wealth determined if you were living the dream.

MKTO American Dream

Say good-bye to white picket fences say hello to palm trees and Benzes they say you got to fall, to have it all. we dont want two kids and a wife we dont want a job, I just want a life sometimes the underdogs rise, and the mighty fall.

This song fits the topic because the words to me are showing someone trying to reach a better life , including wealth . And in the 1920s that's what everyone wanted was money , because to them that was living the perfect life .

American Dream in 1920's

Quote

"As time goes on we get closer to that American Dream of there being a pie cut up and shared. Usually greed and selfishness prevent that and there is always one bad apple in every barrel."

Materialistic

excessively concerned with material possessions; money-oriented.

In the 1920s the idea of the American Dream is to have material wealth.
