I'd heard the speech before some 20 years ago, never knew it's origins or who it was who gave it. I'm wrapped that Iron Sky has brought it back into
focus. I was stunned when I saw it was Charlie Chaplin who had given that speech, what a talent!
I can't imagine how different a world it could be had Hitler been more like this, things could have turned out wildly differently.
Ok, I need help. I'm just a dummy. The speech is brilliant, powerful, it tears into my soul and awakens a will for a world of peace. But now I've
seen the footage to the end, I'm conflicted.
I'm just a uneducated sort, and I cant quite understand the motives at the end of the speech. He advocates against war throughout the speech, but in
the end it feels like he is rallying troops for battle for his ideals. I can't get my head around that bit, am I blinded by the power of the speech
that I'm feeling 'yeah, let's remove all those scum who are against world peace, wheres my gun'? Or am I totally getting that bit wrong. (I probably
should go watch the movie and find out!). I get where he's going, and I tend to agree. But it feels wrong to fight against fighting.
Grrr. This thread needs more attention.
