The American Dream Ain't Amway
I recently read an article about how the concept of the American Dream has changed. And that might be due to changing technology and job and travel opportunities. People don't have to stay in the little town they grew up in.
The things most people want out of life have changed from when we were kids. What our parents felt was the American Dream and what younger generations think it is is miles apart..
Our parents owned nice houses. They owned businesses. They had nice cars. They had a few toys like a color TV and a new fangled dishwasher. And got cablevision. Oh and what about that big old microwave oven! Our parents liked having a few toys and taking vacations. They liked to redecorate the house every few years with new carpets and new furniture. They didn't have debt. They had investments.
And speaking of debt credit cards didn’t really come around in full swing until about 30 or 40 years ago and not everyone was convinced plastic was better than cash. In this day and age not everyone carries cash they mostly keep credit cards in their wallets.
The American dream of our parents was a lot simpler.
What's the American Dream today? Is it still to own a house, a car and a business? Probably to some people depending on if they're following their parent's lead. Technology has rapidly changed. Owning the latest gadgets aren't kitchen appliances anymore. They're phones, cars, and computers and other electronics. People get jobs if they don't own a business. They have credit cards. They have debt.
And then one day a fucking Amway asshole walks up to them and taunts them about how they'd like to be debt free. Living their dreams. Walking the beaches of the world. Have gazillions of dollars in residual income rolling in every month in the next 2 to 5 years.
And the Amway asshole browbeats the prospect into demanding to know what their dream is. And whatever the prospect says the dream will never be good enough for an Amway fucker. The prospect says they want to own a house. The Amway asshole says dream big you want to own a mansion. The prospect says they want to buy a Ford Mustang and the Amway fucker says dream big you want to own a Bentley. The prospect says they’d like to take a vacation in Italy. The Amway asshole says no you want to spend a week on a private Caribbean Island named Peter and have 24 hour servants taking care of all you.
In other words whatever your dream is it’ll never be big enough for Amway the Cult of Greed.
Amway has destroyed the dreams of many people. Amway is like a hurricane of mass destruction leaving in its path debt, divorce, foreclosure, bankruptcy, eviction. That’s the real path of Ambots following the Amway Cult of Greed.
If you want a better life for yourself and your family stay the hell away from Amway.
The American dream isn’t all about selling shitty overpriced products. The American dream isn’t all about selling $40 Amway laundry soap when shoppers prefer to buy $10 Tide laundry soap at Walmart that gets the clothes cleaner. The American dream isn’t all about self consuming $300 in shitty overpriced Amway products every month just to get a $10 check. The American dream isn’t lying and scamming people that perfect water cures cancer or any other terminal illness. For Christ sakes aren’t there enough scammers in the world selling snake oil that Amway had to compete?
The American dream isn’t all about tithing the Great Amway God in a pyramid scheme where the only ones making money are the ones sitting at the top of the pyramid who got in a long time ago.
Can’t people searching for the American dream find one with better odds of success than a fraction of 1%.
The American dream is a better lifestyle choice than the shitty plan offered by Amway chasing a dumb fuck dream with over 99% failure rate.
The American dream ain’t get scammed out of your money by a lying scamming fucking Amway asshole.
The American dream ain’t Amway. Except for brainwashed Ambots who believe in fairy tales.
