My blog was basically the same as yours, about how the American dream keeps changing with the growth of America.
But I think that it's nicer for people to believe that the dream is within reach, and that even thinking that there is that possibility of reaching the dream is what makes people go for it.

I agree that the ideal of a successful life because of education is now an obsolete vision that can no longer be applied to today's world. In the past it was thought that becoming a doctor or lawyer would be your golden ticket to success but in today's world that thought has created a surplus of doctors and lawyers struggling for work. Going to college definately does give you the opportunity to be able to make more money but whether that opportunity is available to you has now changed since the past.
