Actor Mercedes McCambridge (1916 - 2004) speaking before the Women's National Democratic Club in Washington, D.C. on the subject "Freedom is an inside job," and the ways to maintain freedoms in America. She is introduced by Senator Harold Hughes (D-IA). She talks about the essential loneliness of the self; God and Utopia; rage and fear; self-destructiveness— the many little suicides we inflict on ourselves each day; the person within; trust; and responsibility for one's own actions— the recognition that "the buck stops here." Produced by David Selvin for Pacifica Washington Bureau.
