When you go to that other country you realize that in france and in england, you don't ask somebody what they do for a living when you meet someone. A lot of the obvious things, the shortcuts we take in america - in america you can talk about money all you want. You can ask how much they make, rent they pay, how much their house costs and how much their car costs, and they'll feel comfortable telling you. But it's scandalous to ask anyone in england or france a question like that.
The american dream can no more remain static than can the american nation.... We cannot any longer take an old approach to world problems. They aren't the same problems. It isn't the same world. We must not adopt the methods of our ancestors; instead, we must emulate that pioneer quality in our ancestors that made them attempt new methods for a new world.
