The video in the op left me speechless, as I'm writing this reply i still cannot bring about the words to describe how I'm feeling. There is so much hope and opportunity for a better future for our selves and our children that its thick in the air.. you can almost taste it. But what is it that stopping this progression? I can see that everyone in there hearts wants to make that great push for a better future, for example the "Occupy" protest had a great number of followers and it appears to me that the public is now finally ready. Unfortunately, whoever is in control brushes us aside and we are ignored. I for one believe its time for a new united strategy....

I got goosebumps when I saw this and being former military it really hit home. I showed it to my friend who is still in the military and he literally burst into tears and excused himself when C. Chaplin said the "you are men!" part. It kind of caught me off guard to be honest lol But about an half hour later we talked and he said that he was not going to reenlist. By my own admission, I have a lot of hostility...but the video mentions it as being an unnatural state, could it have been caused by the military...I don't know...honestly it feels good to talk about it. Nice post.
Hynkel, the dictator, ruled the nation with an iron fist. Under the new emblem of the double cross, liberty was banished, free speech was suppressed and only the voice of Hynkel was heard.

I still like this one the best.
This came out back when the Occupy movement first started in the States.

No video access? Phone I am guessing basically it is a short three min video with the most inspirational speech ever from the movie the great dictator with Charlie Chaplan, with fantastic video and music overlay not much else I can say and no point elaborating anymore. If you get a chance to watch it, let me know
