Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four freedoms are: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from want and freedom from fear. He used these to explain America’s participation in World War II.

However, the last two of Roosevelt’s freedoms imply government intervention into the lives of the people. In order to get freedom from want, the government would have to use redistribution of wealth.

For freedom from fear Roosevelt declared that we should have a world wide disarmament so that there could be no acts of aggression committed. In Roosevelt’s terms: “…a world-wide 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.”

Therefore, FDR’s four freedoms are not actual freedoms.

  1. In the Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, the Antichrist actually does this: “…a world-wide 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.” – Except the One World Gov’t.

    The Rapture is coming.

    1. Now whether he does this or not…I’m not sure, but with recent trends in Western countries it seems bound to happen, however there is no guarantee. Plus the books are only based on the prophecy, and what happens may be very different.
