American dream nearly dead, government needs to take your freedom

Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio believe that the American dream needs to be revived. According to them, the much-talked about phenomenon of the American dream has gone up in smoke. The officials are correct about their assumption, but they are mistaken about the role of government in restoring and fostering the dream, Pravda.Ru reports.

Interestingly enough, Warren and Blasio have not used the words "freedom and "free" in their 872-word article titled "How to revive the American dream."

They open with a chilling refrain: Opportunity for success for most Americans is hopeless. All but the rich are falling behind because the "game is rigged." Their diagnosis: You can't improve your situation by your own talents or effort. Their prescription: Don't leave freedom in the hands of citizens. Only a massively larger central government, run by people like them, can help you.

They say the American dream is nearly dead. And if the situation is hopeless, the change has to be dramatic. "Bold" is their word. They aren't trying to sell common-sense reforms. They are selling an entirely new American system that fundamentally changes the relationship between central government leaders and you. Thomas Jefferson wrote that the purpose of the government is to secure freedom. Warren and de Blasio's government would take your freedom in order to protect you from freedom's harmful effects.
