At the first of the year Miss Schoonmaker asked us if we thought America was a success or not This got me thinking what are we going to learn that will make us think our country isnt a success Well throughout the year I learned things that made me believe America is not a success Things that made me not believe in America were how we go against things we pledge Like the Constitution and how we treated blacks in the Civil Rights era Another example is the American dream The Dream was all centered primarily around money Has it not been said that money is the root of all evil Do we really believe in a country thats dream is evil I believe the thought of the American dream brought us into civil war The North and the South both had their views on what the American dream was The Northern States wanted the American dream achieved for the whole country to be industrial anti-slavery and very federalist Upon these institutions they planned to make the US a superior nation in the world The South wanted to achieve the same ultimate goal for the US but with agricultural pro- slavery and states sovereignty institutions These are the differences between both sides in achieving the American Dream In order to resolve the conflict of interests North and South had to go to war to prove superiority thus proving which side is the city upon the hill in which the losing side would follow The American dream later made us build the suburbs like Levittown where the country was trying to make us all the same We had the same house just different colors than everyone else This all brought up the issue of conformity America was trying to live up to an ideal that was not securing the blessings of liberty In the best document ever written the opening clause is a big fat lie
