When I think of Human Rights. I think of the four freedoms that FDR spoke of in 1941.
excerpt from Franklin Delano Roosevelt's speech to Congress, 6 January 1941Freedom of Speech
In the future days which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms:
1. The first is freedom of speech and expression - everywhere in the world.
2. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way - everywhere in the world.
3. 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.
4. The fourth is freedom from fear, which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor - anywhere in the world.
Freedom of Worship
Freedom from Want
Freedom from Fear
When we consider human rights, let us consider these essential freedoms, everywhere in the world.
