Death of The American Dream?
    #3841089 - 02/27/05 02:21 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

With the passing of Hunter S Thompson I wanted to do a poll asking the question which seemed at the core of his recent works/interviews (I downloaded the 37 min. interview that was posted on the Shroomery last week and thought it was excellent). Recently asked if he hadn't in fact lived The American Dream by being a self appointed commentator of it's vitality, Hunter exclaimed,

Quote:

Goddamn it! I never really thought about it that way. I suppose I have, when you put it like that.




The moot answer implies that most Americans don't choose to pursue such a dream, but rather feel more comfortable being enlisted in someone else's American Dream. It doesn't discount the existence of such.
In terms of The American Dream?
You may choose only one
It is dead.
It is viable, at this time. (choose this answer even if you feel it is threatened)
It is a moot point.
If you think The American Dream is dead or dying, where does the responsibility lie for the failure(s).
You may choose only one
Government (all venues)
Media
We the People
Is capitalism the only economic vehicle for such a concept as The American Dream
You may choose only one
Yes, absolutely!
Yes, but not absolutely (a mixture of economics would work as well)
No, absolutely not!

Thanks, I'm a moron! Let me see if I can fix. :blush:

Nope, won't let me fix the poll problem. I didn't expect the preset date to be starting tomorrow! Oh, well.... my American Dream poll is dead.
