Even before the recent crises, " [T]he American Dream was not merely a dream but a hoax. "
"... and far from benefiting economic democracy, it produced a terryfing concentration of wealth and power. " -- Jerry Mander in "For Arguments for THE ELIMINATION OF TELEVISION" (1978 (!) ) ISBN 0688082742, p. 148
