Ben Franklin : America's Self-Made Man 
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page paper discussing just what the American Dream is. It has nearly always been measured in terms of wealth, but not necessarily in terms of dollars. The self-made man of Ben Franklin's time was not a success only in terms of money, but in terms of life. Money was the reward—not the goal. The American Dream is still alive, but it has been replaced in the eyes of many by a sham, by that counterfeit that says that money is the only true measure of the worth of a man. The pity is that money can be lost; character remains. Those with little character but great sums can completely lose themselves when the money is lost. Bibliography lists 1 source.
