i don't know, i think that was said a very long time ago when maybe things were better in America. I don't think that goes for now in my opinion.

America does not have near as much of the "tradition" that most of Europe has, so its easier to be what you want. In America "be whatever you want" is heard your whole life, no one holds you back. Its easy to open a busniness, laws and such are pretty easy going. At least for now.. I see control on the horizon.
