FDR's Four Freedoms Speech

Today's the anniversary of FDR's January 1941 Four Freedoms Speech.  Those freedoms were freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

The most famous popular depiction of those freedoms was in a series of posters based on paintings by the artist Norman Rockwell.  Those posters are analyzed in this commentary from the National Archives.
Here's a YouTube excerpt (2:37) from that speech (courtesy of the FDR Library):
