I'd like to have a day off from blogging, but the loonies keep supplying material, even on holidays. Please don't confuse them anymore by using words like 'Pilgrims' and 'Progress' in the same sentence or paragraph or book title.
Karl Marx didn't come over on the Mayflower. That was Groucho, Harpo and Chico, stowaway in the pickle barrels in "Monkey Business." (And, as a friend pointed out, Zeppo, who founded Led Zeppolinism.)
May you have freedom from want this holiday.
FDR's "FOUR FREEDOMS"
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 understandings 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 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.
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. That kind of world is the very antithesis of the so-called new order of tyranny which the dictators seek to create with the crash of a bomb.
