The Four Freedoms Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
In his speech “The Four Freedoms” Franklin D Roosevelt addresses to the state of the union (the people) the vindication for the direct association of the United States in WWII. The historical context behind this was that after WWI U.S had taken an isolation stance to avoid U.S involvement in any wars. He believed that it was reasonable to provide England with the supplies they needed for the war because sooner or later U.S will be forced to get involved in the war. Roosevelt main point for the speech was to present the four freedoms; which include the freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want and freedom from fear. Not only does he mentions that these freedoms are essential for the Americans, but also everyone else in the world.
