What do Google Ngram and Google Trends tell us about the American Dream?

People are now realizing that the "American Dream" is only for an elite few. Not many people realize their American Dream. I think it was a misnomer used to make people feel better about themselves.

The concept of American Dream seems to be that you have a job, you have a wife, kids, and a house. But, how can working in an Auto factory be a "dream" of anybody. The conditions in these factories are not that great. You make close to $30,000 a year and your bosse make upwards of million dollars a year based on your hard work. What a wonderful dream?

Maybe people are understanding the REALITY of "American Dream".
