This book is divided into two parts. The first looks at the ideas that lie at the heart of the American Dream. Those who believe in them and those who do not usually argue fruitlessly across an enormous and unbridgeable gulf. The divide consists of the very different ideas of the kind of thing people are that have been generated by religious and secular world-views. This gap is bridged when the American Dream is reinterpreted in light of the reality it has created of a more intelligent and active mental whole. The morality of allowing people to think becomes apparent when they are conceived of as all being integral parts of that larger mind instead of separate and alone entities. Part Two examines the effects that the ideals of freedom and equality have had in particular areas of American life and their implications for future change. They have particular pertinence to those who wish to see their society become fairer, healthier, happier, more inclusive and more prosperous. Once the outlines of the fundamental morality of the American Dream are clear, the moral choice is not to abolish it but to include everyone in it, not to slow but to accelerate its precipitous spread among the peoples of the world through a wider and deeper understanding of its great promise.
