Governmant Lesson 80 essay

Franklin D. Roosevelt's Four Freedoms

      Franklin D. Roosevelt's four freedoms from his speech that he made on January 6 in 1941 covered a very basic foundation for individual rights and liberties of the American people, beyond that which the Bill of Rights already put down. His speech was aimed at the American people, but he claimed these rights were for people everywhere in the world.
      He added to these rights three years later in his State of the Union address.
      Most of what he spoke of seems to be simple decency from one man to another,
and what Franklin wanted was to have Congress implement this second Bill of Rights, with an eye toward moving ahead after World War two with greater security at home for American citizens.
