Все же американцы такие оптимисты!

Помните, я цитировал Стейнбека и его мнение о американцах времен Великой Депрессии? Каждый себя считал будущим миллионером. Так вот, все то же самое было и 70 годами ранее и 70 годами позже:
Americans are wondrous optimists, looking to the upper class and expecting to join it someday. In 1860, many subsistence farmers aspired to become large slave-owners. So poor white Southerners supported slavery then, just as many low-income people support the extension of George W. Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthy now.
