In this podcast episode, we feature Mr. Harvey and one of his signature radio programs, News and Commentary. The name of this famous 1965 commentary is “Freedom to Chains”. In this 12-minute commentary, Harvey argues that citizens have too often traded their freedom for so-called security that weaves a chain of high taxes on the people by the national government. He traced the history of the devastation of high taxes for the ancient civilizations in China and the Roman Empire. Harvey warns that the same fate face Americas if it continues to rely on the national government to provide for them rather than individual citizens using personal freedom to create their own security and opportunity for a better life for them and their family. News and Commentary was a radio program hosted by Paul Harvey beginning during the Second World War on the ABC Radio Networks for many decades. Mr. Harvey mixed together reports of the day’s news along with his commentary of national and world events.
