MADE IN AMERICA: WILL WE EVER SEE ANOTHER INDUSTRIAL STYLE REVOLUTION AGIN

“WE used to build thing.”


american made

Throughout American history, we prided ourselves on reading labels that read, “Made in the U.S.A.” But now, with so many jobs being shipped overseas to China, we are leaving behind that great American Dream we once thought to be true. Why, well, it’s a lot cheaper to make goods in a foreign country rather than in America. Also, making products here is more difficult to compete globally.

going global

Do we need to go global with everything? And the answer is yes, we do. If you understand on industry is set up, you do. Meaning, people will say, make products in America, then run out and purchase a Toyota. Make it in America, then run out and buy a Samsung. And then we wonder why we can’t compete as a country. So what people say, and their actions are totally different.

Also, if we isolate ourselves, there are products that contain chemicals, herbs, and priceless metals that are not indigenous to the United States. So we couldn’t build anything because you’re talking about needing these priceless products for our innovation. Nothing is actually of this land that we need that we can do for ourselves.

a new beginning

In today’s society, we are more of a information based society than a hands on society. The internet has opened the door to a whole host of opportunities. Opportunities where the small guy can now be his own boss and work from home. You don’t need anyone telling what to work on, and when to work. But that is easier said than done because you have to build.

And the building means years of disappointment before reaching the end goal. That is a journey so many don’t want to take in life because of the degree of failure. But one thing is certain America is not, and can’t go back to the way things were in the past.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
