No. I'm a vegetarian

Just because I haven't posted it in a while- Chaplin's wonderful speech on democracy from The Great Dictator.

For fun here's his famous ballet with the globe scene from the same movie.

It is frightening how appropriate this speech is now. No matter what we think we do to progress, it is obvious that we still are on the wrong path.

I have seen this movie but did not remember this speech.

He was a genius.

Agreed. It fits today's world just as well.


That he was.

Modern Times is great! My favorite Chaplin film is the Gold Rush.
