Cracking the Code of the American Way

Updated Sept 4, 2023

Superman is deeply disturbed by the FBI’s abusive treatment of General Michael Flynn. Back in 1952, during the emergence of television’s influence on the world, a show featuring the comic book hero Superman made its debut. George Reeves took the lead role, and the program ran for six years, leaving a lasting impression on many baby boomers.

At the start of each episode, a narrator would remind viewers that Superman was dedicated to promoting “truth, justice, and the American way.”

However, today, the pursuit of truth and justice faces a significant challenge. The nation’s most powerful law enforcement agency, the FBI, initiated a corrupt investigation aimed at undermining President Donald Trump by linking him to Russia during the 2016 campaign.

There is now undeniable evidence of the FBI’s concerning behavior. Last week, the Department of Justice dropped its prosecution of former Trump national security advisor General Michael Flynn. This decision came after handwritten notes from an FBI investigator were made public, revealing discussions within the Bureau about potentially trapping Flynn into a “lying to the FBI” charge.

Agents succeeded in securing a guilty plea from the General. Some speculate that he did so because the FBI threatened to prosecute his son, who was involved in overseas projects with his father. However, this aspect remains unproven. Subsequently, General Flynn withdrew his guilty plea. Billoreilly

Corporate Control: How Little Say You Have in Your Life

In today’s world, it’s becoming increasingly evident just how controlled our lives are, as demonstrated in the above video and subsequent articles. This control extends to the point where we often have minimal influence over crucial matters. Corporations, it seems, are granted an alarming degree of freedom to pursue their objectives, even at the expense of public well-being. They can potentially harm people, tamper with the food supply, or even compromise the water supply, all with little fear of serious repercussions.

What typically unfolds is when these corporations receive a mere slap on the wrist, often coupled with a refusal to admit wrongdoing. The fines imposed are so negligible that they barely make a dent, effectively allowing these companies to continue their questionable practices without substantial consequence. The result is that a single misdeed becomes enough to cover another ten incidents, perpetuating a cycle of corporate misconduct.

The question then arises: Will they stop on their own accord? The straightforward answer is a resounding “No.”

The Complex History of Force and Violence in American Patriotism

Since the inception of this nation, riots and violent rhetoric have often been associated with the spirit of patriotism. When our Founding Fathers fought for independence, violence was a rallying cry. Phrases such as “Live free or die,” “Give me liberty or give me death,” and “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God” resounded across the land then and continue to resonate today. Throughout history, force and violence have been wielded as tools to safeguard liberty because, as John Adams once articulated in response to the colonists’ mistreatment by the British, “We won’t be their subjects.”

However, it’s important to recognize that black rebellion and protest have not historically been coupled with a sense of allegiance to American democracy. Presently, peaceful demonstrations and violent riots alike have erupted nationwide in response to incidents of police brutality and the tragic deaths of individuals like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. Yet the terminology employed to describe these protesters has often included labels such as “looters” and “thugs,” and some have even questioned their Americanness. The philosophical approach of using force and violence to secure freedom has long been embraced by white Americans while being explicitly denied to black Americans, revealing a complex and deeply rooted historical disparity.  Theatlantic

What Is the American Dream?

The American Dream embodies the belief that anyone, regardless of their place of birth or social class, can achieve their own version of success in a society where upward mobility is within reach for all. Attaining the American Dream is not a matter of chance but rather a result of dedication, risk-taking, and hard work.

To understand the concept of the American Dream, we can trace its origin to writer and historian James Truslow Adams, who introduced it in his widely read 1931 book, “Epic of America.” Adams defined it as “that dream of a land in which life should be better and more prosperous for everyone, with opportunities available to each person based on their abilities and achievements.”

Adams further elaborated, noting, “This dream is not easily comprehensible to the upper classes in Europe, and many of us, too, have become weary and sceptical of it. It is not just a dream of material wealth and high incomes, but a vision of a societal structure in which each individual, regardless of their birth or social standing, can reach their fullest potential and be acknowledged by others for their true abilities.” The American Dream is fundamentally about meritocracy and equality, transcending the arbitrary circumstances of one’s birth or social status.


The Timeless Elegance of the American Dream: From Roots to Evolution

To truly grasp the essence of the contemporary American Dream, we must embark on a journey back to its origins. It was our visionary Founding Fathers who introduced a revolutionary concept – the idea that each individual’s pursuit of their unique vision of happiness was not a mere act of self-indulgence but rather an indispensable force for a thriving society. They took deliberate steps to establish a government dedicated to safeguarding this fundamental right for all.

The Declaration of Independence stands as a beacon, preserving the opportunity for individuals to enhance their lives, regardless of their background. Its resounding words boldly declare:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that their Creator endows them with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

It’s important to note that, in that era, the term “all men” referred exclusively to white, male, property owners. Nevertheless, as time marched forward, the halls of Congress expanded these rights to encompass African Americans, both free and enslaved, as well as women and those without property. President Abraham Lincoln advanced the American Dream by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, granting freedom to enslaved individuals. President Woodrow Wilson championed the cause of unalienable Rights for women, lending his support to the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.

The American Dream has thus evolved and adapted over time, a testament to its enduring elegance and the nation’s commitment to inclusivity and progress.

President Lyndon B. Johnson played a pivotal role in advancing the American Dream through his endorsement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This landmark legislation expanded the horizons of the dream by offering protection to workers against discrimination based on factors such as race, colour, religion, sex (including during pregnancy), and national origin.  Thebalance
