CBC Radio’s  ” Ideas”  – The Five Freedoms

This fascinating series on CBC Radio’s Ideas  – https://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas – ran  April 8 -12.  All are available (1 hr segments) to listen to on your computer.  Here’s a description:

In his 1941 State of the Union address, American president Franklin Roosevelt proposed four freedoms that he believed all people were entitled to: freedom of speech, freedom of belief, freedom from fear and freedom from want.

All this week, we explore ideas about the meaning of freedom in a series of discussions recorded at the Stratford Festival. However, we’ve got a total of five freedoms in our list, and a stellar lineup of thoughtful people to dig into a central question for our times: what is freedom?

*Freedom from Lies

*Freedom from Want

*Freedom from Oppression

*Freedom of Speech

*Freedom to Believe
