Chaplin: The Great Dictator

The Greatest Political Speech of all time?  I think – yes.

At the time (1940) people couldn’t get beyond Chaplin’s parody or “image” as Hitler, and couldn’t see the irony: If only Hitler HAD believed this way – Millions of lives would not have perished.

But still today we grab firmly to sound bites and images (maybe more so than ever) and crucify the messenger for our own agendas. (In this case Chaplin was labeled a Communist and banished from the US)

We should all reflect carefully on this message to humanity this upcoming election –
and every day of our lives.
