Chapter 3 of Lawrence Samuel's The American Dream: A Cultural History
The American dream has undergone successive changes over the years. In the 1960s and 70s, a majority of the Americans had lost hope in their country. Most of the citizens were unhappy regarding the progress of the nation. The Vietnam War, the prevalence of drugs, an increase in crime and massive demonstrations caused more Americans to lose faith in the American dream, which they once held dear (81). Due to such frustrating events, the American dream was fading. Some observers believed that the nation was experiencing “paralysis of the spirit” and were concerned about a looming crisis (83).
