Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Tom Asher, a retired constitutional and charitable lawyer, to talk about the American Dream, which is a long-running and inspiring national-greatness myth. It posits boundless resources, freedoms and successes. Until recently the myth largely kept its overall promise, though not always and not for all. But in the 1970s, a lost war in Vietnam and an overwhelmed domestic economy launched persistent wage stagnation for many Americans. Still, despite widespread dissatisfactions, the sky’s-the-limit Dream remains a national ethos, often luring us into costly lost wars abroad and infrastructure neglect at home. Registration for the talk is $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
