Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Great Dictator’ – Still Relevant After Over 70 Years
It's 2012, over 70 years since the launch of this film…
And yet, listening to it now, it still all seem surprisingly relevant isn't it?
We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in:
machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical,
our cleverness hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little:
More than machinery we need humanity;
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.
Enjoy, and may your path stay wonderful and true
Very powerful, considering he's known to be the silent type eh?
