When people think of Herbert Hoover, or when those who aren’t familiar with him look up his name, he often gets the lion’s share of our animosity over the Great Depression, a time when his administration was unable to lift the economy from a free fall. But prior to the presidency, Hoover was a world-renowned humanitarian who provided food and relief to several weak European nations after World War I. After his administration lost re-election, Hoover returned to his prolific writing, addressing matters of liberty and our American future.
As this is President’s Day, here was a point Hoover made, in 1934, equating the fight for freedom with the fight for justice.
Liberty is a thing of the spirit–to be free to worship, to think, to hold opinions, and to speak without fear–free to challenge wrong and oppression with surety of justice… There are stern obligations upon those who would hold these liberties–self-restraint, insistence upon truth, order, and justice, vigilance of opinion, and cooperation in the common welfare.
