Daily Figment 84 - Epcot Center History America

Laughter is America's most important export.

Tomorrow will be better for as long as America keeps alive the ideals of freedom and a better life.

Why be a governor or senator when you can be king of Disneyland?

Actually, if you could see close in my eyes, the American flag is waving in both of them and up my spine is growing this red, white and blue stripe.

In my view, wholesome pleasure, sport, and recreation are as vital to this nation as productive work and should have a large share in the national budget.

It's like the city of tomorrow ought to be. A city that caters to the people as a service function. It will be a planned, controlled community, a showcase for American industry and research, schools, cultural and educational opportunities.

EPCOT will be an experimental prototype community of tomorrow that will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry. It will be a community of tomorrow that will never be completed, but will always be introducing and testing and demonstrating new materials and systems. And EPCOT will always be a showcase to the world for the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise.

We also featured the American Adventure in an earlier Daily Figment: Daily Figment 59 - 33 Flavors: All Vanilla.
