“The war against working people should be understood to be a real war…. Specifically in the U.S., which happens to have a highly class-conscious business class…. And they have long seen themselves as fighting a bitter class war, except they don’t want anybody else to know about it.” — Noam Chomsky

Part II of our evolution seireis looks at the evolution of the "American Dream" and how to reconcile it with today's American Nightmare.  We'll explore whether or not the American dream and the metophorical big house with a white picket fence, was unrealistic or if the way were told to get it was wrong..  Was the American public hoodwinked to buy into something that was primarily beneficial for the rich?  Does it really matter given the average american earns more than 80% of the rest of the world?  Should we be content with where we are?  Tune in today as we discuss with Jamal Brooks, MBA
