This scene is from one of Charlie Chaplin's most successful films, 'The Great Dictator'. The film was released in 1940, before the US had entered World War II. In this final speech, written by Chaplin, he beautifully and eloquently outlines what matters; freedom, equality, and decency to everyone. This speech is 70+ years old, but still has much relevance today. I really don't have much to add to this video but to say it's a great reminder that in this age of 1,000 friends, tweets and general isolated/connected culture we find ourselves in, we need to remember the importance of kindness, compassion and love.
