AMC Online | Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms Speech — Freedom of Speech
In his January 1941 address to Congress, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt articulated his vision for a postwar world founded on four essential human freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.
As America became engaged in World War II, painter Norman Rockwell did a series of paintings illustrating the four freedoms as international goals that went beyond defeating the Axis powers.
Today we are talking about «freedom of speech» to mark December 15, when the U.S. Congress adopted the First Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1791. The First Amendment is one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights. The First Amendment prevents the government from making laws that regulate an establishment of religion, or that would prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the freedom of assembly, or the right to petition the government for your grievances.
