An inspiring call to redeem the progressive legacy of the greatest generation, now under threat as never before.

On January 6, 1941, the Greatest Generation gave voice to its founding principles, the Four Freedoms: Freedom from want and from fear. Freedom of speech and religion. In the name of the Four Freedoms they fought the Great Depression. In the name of the Four Freedoms they defeated the Axis powers.

In the process they made the United States the richest and most powerful country on Earth. And, despite a powerful, reactionary opposition, the men and women of the Greatest Generation made America freer, more equal, and more democratic than ever before.

Now, when all they fought for is under siege, we need to remember their full achievement, and, so armed, take up again the fight for the Four Freedoms.

As well as the police in Cheyenne Wy North Platte, Nebraska, Lincoln Nebraska, and in Brunswick Missouri. All committing federal crimes against the citizens of the USA. The law enforcement are stealing money to line their budget as well as the cities, counties, and states as well as bribing people and destroying evidence that is on any database. people involved are Bret Schmidt of North Platte Nebraska which is the Lincoln County Sherrif department of Nebraska located in North Platte as well as the Lincoln County courthouse using Nebraska Child Support to steal money and give the victims the runaround.

I was looking forward to reading the book, but sorry to say, I didn't finish it. I found the book a great foundation for a lively discussion, but reading it felt lonely.
