Is A World Of Reason In Our Grasp?


(Wolfer Family) ---------- Cabinet given to Adolf Hitler as a gift.

So much has happened in the world recently that has raised our consciousness  about the need to promote humanity, fairness and universal brotherhood. Many have commented that the recent events in Libya would, hopefully, send loud warnings to other modern dictators to give real power back to the people. But would it really?  Repressive and brutal regimes haven’t only recently become fashionable. The brutal deaths of modern dictators like Hitler,  Idi Amin, and Mussolini didn’t deter the late Colonel Gaddafi and other current despots from marching down the same path of hate and misery.

But there may still be hope.  According to the late great film director and actor, Charlie Chaplin, “the hate of men will pass and dictators die, and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish. . .”  How truly amazing that these words are as relevant today as when first  delivered by Charlie Chaplin, 71 years ago, in a magnificent speech. The full speech itself, comes from the 1940 film “The Great Dictator,” which is a satire  of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

The video clip below shows Charlie Chaplin’s delivery of the inspirational speech that many have dub the best political speech ever.
