Manifesto of American dreamers

Direct answer to The Communist Manifesto. The world is advancing because there are enough people who hope they will become so rich they will no longer have to work. Progress does not depend on man, but the holy trinity governs the evolution of human consciousness. Capital, the law of supply and demand and the American dream evolve what Hegel called consciousness, spirit, but we do stop at progress, since for the sake of progress even the development of consciousness can be halted. Indefinitely. The progress of the human race is nothing but a side-effect of American dreaming.
