The Great Dictator Speech

Ever hear of Charlie Chaplin?  Sure you have. Well he had a little movie called the Great Dictator.  Often confused for a pronazi film, however if you view the movie you’ll see that it’s a critique on world governments as a whole, not just a dark satire piece on Adolf Hitler.  Chaplin goes out a limb in the movie and he gives one hell of a speech that sums up the potential of human kind that is instead pacified by our human inequities and global elite.  Turn the lights down for just a little bit, it won’t take long I promise, and enjoy the comic genius Charles Caplin, revealing that he can convey ideas not strictly related to comedy but a call to your hidden human nature.
