1. Define what we mean by the term “European Dream.”
2. Discuss what Europeans mean by “social justice,” and note how social justice compares with
what Americans call “welfare statism.”

social justice. [You are welcome to judge these features and results if you so desire, but be sure
you make clear to the reader that you understand what these hallmark features and results
are.]
4. Note how the contrasting European and American views of the positive and the negative
