The Externalization of the Hierarchy - Section III - Forces behind the Evolutionary Process
The Four Freedoms

January 6, 1941

In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human 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 - which, translated into world terms, means a worldwide 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. [320]
