Charlie Chaplin: "A message for all humanity"

To those who can hear me, I say Do not despair The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men, the other way of human progress The hate of men will pass And dictators die The power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die liberty will never perish

Soldiers, don't give yourself to brutes men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel who drill you, diet you, threat you like cattle, use you as canon butter Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men with machines minds and machine hats

You are not a machine, you are not cattle, your are men!

You have the love of humanity in your hearts You don't hate, only the unloved hate They love to be unnatural Soldiers, don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty! The Kingdom of God is within men, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men, in you!

You, the people have the power! The power to beat machines The power to create happiness You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful to make this life a wonderful adventure Than, in the name of democracy, let us choose that power! Let us all unite! Let us fight for a new world, a decent world, that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and at all ages security

Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people Now, let us fight for a free world to fulfill that power to do away with national barriers, with greed, with hate and intolerance Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness.

Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite!
