In 1940, a movie starring Charlie Chaplin was released. It was about a poor Jewish barber who is mistaken for a dictator with a similar appearance to him. He takes his place and in his rejection of the position, he gives one of the most inspirational speeches of all time.
The speech, written by Charlie Chaplin himself 76 years ago, needs to be heard today more than ever.
Leaders will use the opportunity when the nation is divided for their own good. History will repeat itself. Our environment, economy, and world peace are already holding on by a thread. We need love and compromise more than ever. Instead of spreading hate, share this. Be the change you want to see in the world.
Anyone who wants to see the full movie, it’s called The Great Dictator. It has a rating of 8.5/10 on IMDB with 141,254 votes.
