For centuries, the American Dream has become a national ethos of the US, which today symbolizes an opportunity for every individual to achieve prosperity and success through hard work regardless of race, ethnicity and religion.
From Martin Luther King to Barack Obama, from Henry Lee to Jeremy Lin, the American Dream inspired millions of immigrants to make their dreams come true.
Last November, China’s new leader Xi Jinping put forward the notion of “Chinese Dream,” saying the Chinese dream is the cause of rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
During the closing session of the National People’s Congress this March, Xi elaborated that the Chinese dream is also the dream of every individual. “Every single Chinese has the opportunity to get ahead and achieve their dream,” said the president.
China has emerged as the second largest economy in the world and is closing in on the frontrunner US. In a rapidly developing country where transformative innovation on the economic and social landscape clashes with age-old tradition and cultural heritage, Chinese individuals are blessed with this opportunity to make a difference, large or small.
The Chinese dream is neither Otto von Bismarck’s blood and iron policy, nor Japan’s greater East Asia co-prosperity sphere, nor Britain’s “the sun never sets on the British Empire” type. The dream for a thriving nation is ultimately every individual’s dream in pursuit of happiness.
