03.04 FREE FROM FEAR Q: Are the poor and the wealthy equally concerned about the “freedom from fear”? Compare and contrast both speeches to answer this question. Has the idea of "freedom from fear" changed over time? After reading and analyzing both President Barack Obama’s “Welcoming Remarks” speech and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” speech you can easily see that the idea of "freedom from fear" I would say no. Without identifying an impending danger, fear is still the driving emotion and forces us to rely on our leaders to try and help calm our anxiety as we look for reinsurance. In FDR’s speech, he addresses citizens who are facing a war during an already tumultuous time dealing with current fears brought on by the hardship of depression. During the depression, people witnessed how daily lives were affected by the economy, not just the poor but every walks of life. Most if not all would have felt the anxiety of fear of how the impending war would directly impact them.
