America is a dream and a mare, a state of mind, something to love and hate, a story based on a legal text: the American constitution

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defencse, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

 

So it begins, this 231 years old text. It is USA. And it is one of history's most influenctial political texts. Based on American fanaticism, relativism, exceptionalism, and ultra-individualism, Espen Klouman Høiner, throws himself on dissecting and defining the essence of America. WE, THE PEOPLE, is a monologue, a poetic exploration, a bastard sort of soliloquy about, and on behalf of the American people.

Sooner or later we'll hastily follow the white rabbit down the rabbit hole, falling miles downwards into… America! But America isn't somewhere – America is, and has always been, an idea, a dream, and a state of mind.
