The American Dream is “the notion that the American social, economic, and political system makes success possible for every individual,” according to dictionary.com. It also is “a life of personal happiness and material comfort as traditionally sought by individuals in the U.S.” “Our Sprawling Supersize Utopia” by David Brooks discusses the problems of suburbs and how Americans are never satisfied. “America” by Tony Hoagland is a poem about what America has become.
