Reader: American dream isn’t dead

Robert Ware says the American Dream is dead. Let us reject pessimism and embrace optimism.

Every civilization changes over time. Every civilization has progress and setbacks. Robert Ware says people who study hard and work hard can’t get ahead any more. Where’s his proof?

He must be a Republican, making up his own alternative “facts.” We do have limits: unpolluted air, potable water, arable land. But there is no limit on the imagination of an American and no limit on obtaining compassion, contentment, empathy and wisdom.
