Present-day America is one of the world great states at the height of their power (un des grands états du monde au sommet de leur puissance) present in the world … Everybody speaks about globalization and about an American model. Thus, America influences the rest of the planet. For some people, America represents a "dream", for others, this country represents an economic, political and social strenght. As far as I’m concerned, America is an attractive country, both interesting and frightening. It makes me think too of a mysterious country where life is sometimes a dream, sometimes a sad economic reality. First, let’s see why America seems to be a dream for a few people; then, let’s note that America is an economic, political and social challenge. Nowadays, many persons say that America is a "dream" that is to say a country where the happiness reigns ( pas d’inversion du sujet en Anglais), a country synonymous with freedom and where life would be much easier to live. That was all the more true as the period after the war was difficult but also during the big period of hanging immigration and after the second world war. And that is why people thought they would find a better life in America, they hoped to be happier and freer( je pense que comme free est un adjective court…?) than in their country. Unfortunately, this dream is not accessible to every people … Should we believe the American dream doesn’t exist? America chooses the immigrants whom she wants to welcome, what provokes the secret immigrations or the other problems on the American borders as well as the borders between the various American countries … ( Là, je n’ai pas touché…) Furthermore,, some countries tend to consider America as a model for their government because America symbolizes freedom, for
luck, anybody could achieve what they wanted in life.

“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.”
It is also mentioned in his speech “American Dream” on the….

that barely keeps her alive from one day to the next, she is a slave.
Contemporary slavery shares with the slavery of the past the essentials of violence and exploitation, but today it is not a legal institution. Modern slavery has two characteristics that make it very different from slavery of the past. Today, slaves are cheap, and they are disposable.
The drop in prices can be explained by the population explosion at the end of WWII. Indeed, it helped create a flood of potential slaves….
