2. How do his definitions of freedom and tyranny represent a departure from the then traditional American understanding of the terms? Be specific.
3. Although he says little specific about the New Deal, FDR clearly is trying to link the New Deal to a new concept of freedom. How can one make that case explicitly?
4. What about the circumstances in 1936 would’ve made Americans receptive to FDR’s arguments?
