Dunbar-Ortiz asserts this ideology is harmful and dishonest because it serves to mask and diminish the US's history of settler colonialism, genocide, white supremacy, slavery and structural inequality, all of which we still grapple with today. The idea that we are living in a land of opportunity promotes a benign narrative of progress, obscuring that the country was founded in violence as a settler state and imperialist since its inception.
