Excerpt

"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 which, translated into world terms, means economic understanding which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants -- everywhere in the world.

"The fourth is freedom from fear which, translated into world terms, means a worldwide 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.

"That is no vision of a distant millennium. It is a definite basis for a kind of world attainable in our own time and generation."

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, Washington, January 6, 1941.

"Past failures have not dimmed our hopes that an effective world instrument to dispense and enforce justice will arise from the terrors, sufferings and sacrifices of this war; for such an international government, China, with all other liberty-loving nations, will gladly cede such of its sovereign powers as may be required." T. V. SOONG, China; New Haven, June 9, 1942.

"We have seen our globe in no time turned into one armed camp. We can transform it as quickly into a fit home for the human family.

LOLA MAVERICK LLOYD andROSIKA SCHWIMMER ( Chaos, War, or a New World Order , 1942).
