Franklin D. Roosevelt’s political ideas before and during his presidency. His justification of the Social Security Act, and what made it distinctive. Discussion of alternatives that Roosevelt had available and did not take, especially what I call “moderate liberalism,” centering on a strong sense of community and a weakened sense of property rights.
