This is a really interesting thought to me. It can be argued that the telos the early United States was manifest destiny. With that in mind, many of the systems that were implemented were in that same vein: to expand west, obtain and exploit all resources, and making America great again...

So, what is the new American Dream that we can sell to the populace?
