A new version of the American Dream

Wonderful essay by Kevin Hartnett:

“So, what is it? What is the third American Dream?” I don’t know, of course, and Mead says he doesn’t know either. The suburban ideal would have been hard to imagine in 1890 and it’s just as hard to picture what the iconic American lifestyle will look like sixty years from now.
