Most prosperous Western societies are based on a model we call the Secular Democratic Marketplace (SDM). Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them.
At the moment, one of the principal agents exploiting these defects, is Islam. Therefore, this site pays particular attention to that threat.
Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks; nor to read them; nor even to record them. So 4F gives only a brief overview of how far it has advanced and by what methods.
We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow Muslims the possibility of escape from their totalitarian political system.
The 4 Freedoms
These 4 freedoms are designed to close the 4 vulnerabilities in the standard model of SDM, by making them Self-Preserving (SP) according to Hobbes's first law of nature. 1. SP Freedom of Speech Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms 2. SP Freedom of Election Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms 3. SP Freedom from Religion
Any religious or cultural activity is allowed - except one which intrudes into the public sphere (and thus threatens these freedoms). The public sphere is kept secular and protected from abuse by legal oversight. 4. SP Freedom of the Market Any economic activity is allowed - except one which leads to the destruction of these freedoms. Such activity is subject to government oversight.
