The American Dream Under Fire
The American Dream Under Fire: How Progressive Values Threaten Our Financial Future is a provocative book that outlines the entrepreneurial values of the United States from its inception to the present. This book seeks to define the question “what is changing about America that is putting small business out of business,” and proposes solutions to these problems. It explores the foundations of America’s leadership in the world and looks for positive solutions that can put America back on track.
The greatness of America derived from a belief that the individual operating freely would create the best world for themselves and their communities; now however, increasing government intrusion is whittling away at the very freedoms that created the nations greatness. From social welfare systems that create institutional poverty to education that promotes collectivism, the American dream is under attack from all sources. Lemonade stands are being closed by health departments, private property rights are violated by overzealous land regulators and risk and unknown outcomes are now becoming seen as bad words being replaced safety and equality. As Ben Franklin once said “Men who desire safety at the expense of liberty deserve neither.” This is a book ever American need to read.
