Since most of you are older than I am, then some of you can help me with this question:
I am doing a report on Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" speech which he spoke in 1941. The thing I question and want to find is who wrote that speech, why was it written, What did it reflect about society at the time, How did it change society,and why it is important today?

I also need lots of websites that have this on them.

Please, I really want to get a good grade!!!

Cool site with the 4 Norman Rockwell paintings articulating the Four Freedoms.

Text of the speech and a short analysis. It's a fairly self-explanatory speech and concept once you read the text.

I have no idea how long or detailed paper you're writing, so I hope this is useful...

If you have time, take a look at Woodrow Wilson and his Fourteen Points for a compare-and-contrast with FDR's Four Freedoms. Whereas the Four Freedoms were more general concepts, WW had specific ideas for the world after the Great War (WWI).

If nothing else, it's interesting to point out the relative failures and successes that these two presidents had in providing a vision of a postwar world.

Hopefully this is more like Road Warrior and less like Thunderdome Gibson to appear in new 'Mad Max' film
