Four Freedoms

States anymore. His poster depicts our freedoms being taken away from us. The “Freedom of Speech” picture persuades me not to want to protest. It conveys to me that if we go out into the streets and exercise our freedom of speech we will be gagged and hauled off to jail. The Police in the poster look menacing and colossal, and the protester looks small and meager. The “Freedom of Worship” poster persuades me not to tell anyone what religion I am for fear that I may get killed, for not being the...

American Culture Paper

Roosevelt spoke to a world immersed in war and a nation worried from economic depression in an effort to move the nation away from a foreign policy of neutrality. His plan was to secure the future in four different ways. This he called the four essential human freedoms.

Four Freedoms

In "The Four Freedoms" speech, President Roosevelt describes the historical context in which the U.S. finds itself one year before the attack on Pearl Harbor, but describing that context is not the point of his speech. His point is to promote the "four freedoms" but he does not actually get to outlining the "four freedoms" until the very end of the speech.

Naturally, the Americans felt a distrust towards them after the government from their home country attacked America. They felt that even though many of these Japanese were American citizens, they could still sympathize with their home country. This led the people to believe that some may be disloyal to America. They saw Japanese...

Eric Fromm

in Frankfurt, Germany. His father was a business man and, according to Erich, rather moody. His mother was frequently depressed. In other words, like quite a few of the people we've looked at, his childhood wasn't very happy. Like Jung, Erich came from a very religious family, in his case orthodox Jews. Fromm himself later became what he called an atheistic mystic. In his autobiography, Beyond the Chains of Illusion, Fromm talks about two events in his early adolescence that started him along his...
