The American Dream Violence Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
The American Dream is a vast concept we have today, in this quote the American Dream can be interpreted was that violence is all around us and when we are involved they always question the wrong person. The American Dream is for there to be less violence and more peace within the communities but it is just a dream and Holden does not believe the people can live up to that expectation. In addition, others hear the violence but do not stand up for what's right. The American Dream in this quite is illustrated as being a peaceful community where others mind their business but Holden sees past that. He does not need for this to be an American Dream because he does not believe in a perfect world that is all about serenity.
