Moyers & Company
Fighting for the Four FreedomsUnknown - 2014
In this edition of Moyers & Company, historian Harvey J. Kaye talks with Bill about FDR's January 1941 State of the Union address, delivered less than a year before Pearl Harbor and America's entry into World War II. In his "Four Freedoms speech" Roosavelt envisioned a progressive society in which freedom of speech and religion, along with freedom from want and fear were shared across the world. But what is the state of these freedoms today? Kaye says, "We need to remember that we're the children and the grandchildren of the generation that beat the Great Depression and defeated fascism and imperialism in World War II and went on to create the strongest and most prosperous country in human history. And how did they do that? By making America freer, more equal and more democratic.
