The New American Dream: a study of the Great Reawakening

The Great Reawakening or as some call it the New American Dream, is a New Age theory surrounding the melding of the Revolutionary Spirit and the More Perfect Union espoused by the 16th President of the Union Abraham Lincoln. Founded in the aftermath of the Second Civil War, it enspouses the premise of the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal and that the nation must live to those very ideas to survive in a new world. The idea was soon embraced by thousands around the nation following the war and it convinced even the ardent of segregationists that they would be left in behind if they did not change. This of course does not mean all embraced it but many saw the benefits of such an idea. By 1954, four years after the Second Civil War, former General Dwight Eisenhower would be the first of these New American Dream supporters to become President and state that the time for change had come and set to work to rebuild a once great Union. Slowly but surely, this idea would be taught in schools, speaking of the glories of the past while also speaking of the grand dream to build the Perfect Union spoke of by Lincoln. New ideas would be embraced regarding power and social work projects. New bridges, roads and other such projects would be tied to the New American Dream until the rebuilding was completed in 1970. This would still be the centerpiece of the grand dream to make the nation better than it was in the years before the Second Civil War and by the early 90s, a great economic boom would give rise to to new work projects to replace aging infrastructure. This economic boom would end with the start of the Neo Nazi Revolt and though there was hope it would return in the post-revolt era, the Market Crash that occurred before the end of the 2010s would dash those hopes for a time until the Lincoln Administration and followed by the Roosevelt Administration. With the Dawes Administration expanding the economic policies of the Gavin Administration of the 1980s and the social welfare policies of the Preston Administration in the 90s, the New American Dream has become more than an idea but the very centerpiece of American internal affairs, always changing to reflect the times while still staying true to the nearly mythical words of the Declaration:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

While also staying true to the words of Abraham Lincoln that the government of the people, by the people and for the people will not perish from this Earth.
