It’s All Good

Scan 203


 

“Americans who are not poor find American individualism a satisfying ideology, for it explains their success in life by laying it at their own doorstep. This enables them to feel proud of their success, even if it is modest, rather than somehow ashamed of it. Crediting success to their position in social structure threatens those good feelings. It is much more gratifying to believe that their educational attainments and occupational successes result from ambition and hard work—that their privilege has been earned.” –James W. Loewen from Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong c. 1995 by The New Press.
