The American Dream?
Both these articles share that people are trying to achieve change. In the first article it is centered on money, school systems, war, etc. The second article is about achieving the American Dream and how it has to do with relying on government, and certain expectations. But the second article was written much more optimistically. Bob Herbert uses phrases like "The human suffering in the years required to recover from the recession will continue to be immense." while Cal Thomas talks about why the American Dream has been so hard to reach and less about why everything is terrible. They both asses America's trouble financially and socially but Cal Thomas talks more about the culture and generations and less of "the hole we are in". I agree with both but I would take Cal Thomas' side more securely.
