“The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States,
the set of ideals (democracy, rights, liberty, opportunity and equality) in which freedom
includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, as well as an upward social mobility for
the family and children, achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers.”
“The reason this country continues its drift toward socialism and big nanny government is

“Socialism states that you owe me something simply because I exist.
Capitalism, by contrast, results in a sort of reality-forced altruism:
I may not want to help you, I may dislike you,
but if I don’t give you a product or service you want, I will starve.
Voluntary exchange is more moral than forced redistribution.”
~ Ben Shapiro,
