The Hijacked American Dream

BY JOEL LARSGAARD
@ VOL 20 ON OCT 04, 2013

The American Dream is not what it used to be. It has been hijacked. Joel Larsgaard talks about the three keys to taking it back. They are:

  • Get rid of the things you don't use
  • Make your future purchases thoughtfully
  • Use a hotel room as a model for your life

The best things in life are experiences. Consume less and make better choices.

Many of the refugees fleeing from their countries to America have been sent to Clarksville, Georgia. Speaking no English, they have a difficult time finding work.

About the City's Organizers

  • Kevin Ward

    Hailing from the Buckeye State and a wanderer at heart (add Japan, Haiti, Mexico and Honduras to the list of places traveled) I find myself here in ATL having recently moved from San Francisco. Now, I find I am providing some of the best art and independent film for the masses here in the South. I used to assist and help organize the Columbus, OH Pk Night and I'm looking forward to continuing the fun here in ATL!

  • Beth Yeckley

    You can most often find me drinking local coffee or bourbon. Otherwise, I enjoy rock climbing, writing about music, cooking, studying up on over-fishing and the fight to keep fisheries sustainable, listening to all of Death Cab's discography, and this cat I own named Bear. I also drive my Corolla like it's a Porsche.
