What is the European Dream supposed to be?

We all know about the American Dream. The American Dream is to go from rags to riches, to reach wealth and success... blah blah blah. Right.

So I was wondering: what is the European Dream supposed to be?

(considering that there is a European Dream, thank you)

the European Dream will not necessarily be for the Europeans themselves

that and a counter weight to America


They have been fairly successful in the peace department, in that there have not been any repeats of the WW1 and WW2, wars starting in Europe between European nations.

As for a counter weight to U S policies.

They have had some impact on the Mid-East (Israeli-Palestine conflict).

The E U economy still lags behind the U S, but is improving.

I think the politicians are still wondering also.

You are joking, right, Indra, I've been lucky enough to meet quite a few Americans in this country, & each and every 1 of them has left a favourable impression on me, I especially liked how optimistic, & cheerful each of the ones I met have been.

No, you dream of it, we have it

Well, that the next generation is better off than the own generation, that you are financially independent, successful in what you do, free and peacefully living with one another and so on isn't that unique to Americans.
Why should we dream of so much different things?

Yes, but this is rather a political and economical goal than a dream.

If you asked a European I think this would be very much at the end of the list he would think of.

in most parts of europe, yes, but the u.s. economy is improving even faster, so its not likely that europe will catch up with america in the near future.

you'll find some generalised anti-american sentiment in france, but it's not what characterizes most europeans.

Hey, why should Europeans be any different than us? I keep hoping the ugly and stupid Americans will fuck off and die.
