Charlie Chaplin’s 1940 film, The Great Dictator, ended with a speech called A Message of Hope to Mankind. With all that I’ve had to say recently, and with everything I continue to stand for, this speaks far louder. In four minutes, I don’t think it an exaggeration to say that Chaplin delivers the most important address in mankind’s history. It resonates powerfully now. In these dark days for looming tyranny, war, and economic collapse, there is another way.
Chaplin’s is a message which I feel should be disseminated, syndicated, broadcast and shared by as many media channels as possible. This blog is a small beacon of hope.
This comic actor, film-maker, and composer who rose to fame during the era of silent film, just made a speech, with more feeling than any politician would be able to orate.
