in the future days

in the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

the first is freedom of speech and expression - everywhere in the world.

the second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way - everywhere in the world.

the third is freedom from want - ...healthy peacetime life for its in habitants - everywhere in the world.

the fourth is freedom from fear - ...which means 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 neighbour - anywhere in the world.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1941
