A Previous Four Freedoms

In 1941 Franklin Roosevelt gave a speech in which he outlined four freedoms. They’re different from Stallman’s. 🙂

The Four Freedoms

The first is freedom of speech and expression –everywhere

in the world.

The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his

own way– everywhere in the world.

The third is freedom from want, which, translated into world

terms, means economic understandings which will secure to

every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants

–everywhere in the world.

The fourth is freedom from fear…

This is basically a statement of human rights, after Wells but before the UN.
