Examples out of NY: China town, Little italia, German clubs, Spanish speaking communities Historical landmarks of the American Dream -1776: The Declaration of Independence, as the legal foundation of the American Dream, states that "all men are created equal" and that every citizen has "a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness", thus reinforcing the importance of equal opportunities, freedom and selfrealisation. -1789: The Constitution establishes the principles of democratic government. -1791: The Bill of Rights restricts the powers of the central, federal government and reinforces the freedom and equality of all American citizens. -1790-1890: After the Revolutionary War (1776-1783) Americans start to move westward and to settle the vast North American continent. The furthest point of white settlement set up by American pioneer families becomes known as the "frontier". Surviving in solitude and Kommunikationsprüfung tough conditions requires the so-called frontier spirit, i.e. a strong sense of self-reliance and pragmatism. In 1890, this great historic movement westward finishes with the end of the Indian wars. The historically unique existence of a huge, thinly populated area of free and mostly fertile land, its gradual recession and the advance of civilisation are essential to the American character. -1865: Slavery is legally abolished at the end of the Civil War, under the presidency of Abraham Lincoln. -1869: Full voting rights are given to women in the state of Wyoming. Not until 1920 do all American women get the right to vote. -1870: Voting rights are extended to all adult males of all races. -1933: Franklin D. Roosevelt aims to overcome the extreme poverty and inequalities that resulted from the Great De-pression of the 1920s. His legislation includes work creation programmes, direct relief to the unemployed and a basic national system of social security. - -1964: As a result of Martin Luther King's Civil Rights Movement and his dream of a colourblind society, racial segregation in public places, schools, etc. and job discrimination are banned. Legal discrimination is hereby abolished. -1960s/1970s: The younger generation of Americans increasingly rejects the traditional values of their parents and the government. They follow their own dream of individual freedom and the pursuit of pleasure. Pro and Cons the American dream today pro - people from all over the world are still coming to America to fulfill their dreams - a lot of people are still willing to work hard and go through hardships to achieve success/ make money - Americans still want to push their frontier further -> dream of a mars landing - poverty and lack of education didn't stop people before (Steven Spielberg, Michael Jordan, Bill Gates) word Uncle Sam Ellis Island Manifest Destiny New Canaan Frontier Old Glory con - today it's harder to become rich/famous (there were more jobs in the past and the economy was way better) - immigrants to not get a fair chance of making it in America (example of the illegal immigrants coming from Mexico) - gap between rich and poor has widened, class system is still there (discrimination, racism, delinquency) - examples of a failed American Dream: terrorist attacks of 9/11, financial crisis in 2008, war in Iraq - danger of poverty is very high -> no more security -> poor welfare & health care systems meaning Amerikanische Regierung Symbol der Immigration Auftrag von Gott, der die territoriale Ausbreitung rechtfertigt Das gelobte Land" (promised land, bible) Ansiedlung im Westen des Landes Bezeichnung der amerikanischen Flagge ('stars and stripes' → purity, bravery,justice) ♥ O The American Dream American Core Values patriotism- Pioneer Spirit → explore → people are proud to be american spread to new territories illegal /legal immigrants → American Citizens (tensions) → multiculturalism, clash of cultures. gun culture mobility (social) importance of religion • the frontier spirit - frontier = borderland → transition between the Civilized world and the wilderness the values of the settlers who moved west, exploring the wilderness Protestant work ethic. - if you want to become economically successful, you have to work hard, be self-disciplined, benave responsibly → people's prosperity is seen. as a sign of God's grace inalienable rights the Declaration of independence 4.
