This video has stuck in my mind quite profoundly. A good friend of mine had shown me this
masterpiece of a speech..I apologize if the placement of this video upsets anyone for this forum topic.
Sadly enough many of you may have never heard this speech... I know I would have almost certainly
Never stumbled across this on my own. Enjoy.

Not to diminish the awesomeness of the speech...

Original Scene:

For those that haven't seen it. Do yourself a favour
I most likely discovered from one of the many threads above so I'm glad you have re-posted it.

I find this video depressing actually... because it is very popular and went "viral" some time ago, yet the message has never made any impact whatsoever. So you can sit there and get goosebumps watching this crap, but in the end it is nothing but pretty words to a society that is increasingly unable to meaningfully reflect on messages like this.

and honestly, I think that Charlie was "in on it" and if you think about it this video kind of calls for a new world order. Not that we don't need one, but I am sure he was in the same circle of friends who only think that a utopian world is possible through perversion, corruption and destruction of the current one.

I agree, it is impotent, our hearts are empty even though we still like to listen, for the goose-bump effect. He sounds and looks like Hitler, in fact I would conjecture that he was purposely parodying Hitler's passion - Charlie did not hide his Hitler sympathies hence the moustache..

I've seen that awful snorefest so many times....

That was a piece of rather masterful manipulation for its time. Anyway, as frozenspark indicated above, you might want to look a little closer into Chaplin. Things are rarely what they seem....

I think there is a fight to be fought for a better world but that fight won't be fought by soldiers. It will be fought by anyone who sees the need for such a fight and will be fought in places like ATS. It will be fought in the mind and hearts of people everywhere and then taken out into daily life in the way we deal with each other.

A couple of nights ago at work, I was standing outside smoking a cigarette at about 4 AM. It was bitter cold in Toronto, at least -10 degrees Celsius, probably colder.

I looked down the driveway of the building where I work and saw a darkly clad, diminutive "bag lady" pushing a shopping cart loaded with her stuff down the sidewalk, on the other side of the street about 100 yards from me. She was what I would call a "battleship bag lady". She had a lot of baggage on the cart. She was moving fast.

I sighed. I felt compassion for her, cold and alone in the dark of the Canadian winter, pushing her junk down the street. I turned away grimly, but then I thought, "I should give her some money." I thought I had twenty dollars in my pocket.

I felt in my pocket and could feel the money there. Yes, it was twenty dollars.

I looked back at the bag lady, who was moving fast, and I took off running, in her direction. I ran across Bloor St. and jumped up on the snowbank, crunching over it, landing on the sidewalk and rushing up to her with the twenty in my hand.

She was startled and said, "Get away from me." She didn't stop pushing her cart.

I waved the twenty in front of her and said, "Here!"

Scornfully, she said, "I don't want it. Leave me alone!"

I just said, "OK." and turned to scurry back to the warmth of my job across the street. I was freezing in my jacket and tie and just wanted to get back in out of the cold.

She rolled on.

I was a little annoyed with her, but after a while I just shrugged. It was her life. Telling me to "get lost" was probably worth more than twenty dollars to her.

Bottom line. When freedom becomes important to people, they will do what they need to do to get it, no matter what the cost in comfort.

what i see is an actor being turned into a puppet of the nwo. i enjoy the speech there is plenty of good things within the speech that we could all step back and take a look at. but there are a few key points of the speech that scream Illuminati. i wish we as the people could have this type of passion, but we all care about is face book and getting a awesome 9-5 job and watching are favorite shows and movies, they are dividing and conquering us through media and this seems to be the start of it. star and flag, it is a good message if people took it seriously. but i fear it was a message put out by those that ultimately want to hurt the people.

Just FYI, Charlie Chaplin was under scrutiny from MI5, by request of the FBI in the US. The reason was that they suspected that he had roots in communist and liberal thinking. Of all the people in the entire world that you could poke with the "probable government puppet" stick, he is the least likely candidate.

Agreed. And, as usual, nothing has changed. Humankind seems to be rather complacent and accepting of this propaganda, while going about daily life as normal. This seems like an early propaganda film that could potentially awaken others. Things have not changed for the average people here.

Sure "we all want to help everyone", but on average that is not reality in the Western world, who are probably the majority of the audience here.

While this vid holds some truths and some insights, I see this as propaganda If not, then the people today are very out of touch with reality of living. (and I think most people are, except for rural folk.)

Edit: the video lost me "in the name of democracy" - what a failed concept imo

I like the sentiments generally, but when he said something about tear down national boundaries, sounds a little NWOish.

I've never seen this before. Thanks for making us aware of it.

WEll if we all "unite" it is called the NWO bad... if we all stay separate with our countries we continue on as we do today.

So we need to do one of two things.. Either unite or stop b#tch#ng about how things are without being united.

Asking people to get along when they are divided is almost impossible. I squabble with my brother and sister all the time and we are family. There is hierarchy that was established between us as kids and it still there today.

Same goes with nations as does with individuals.

The only thing I have been able to come up with to stop many of our problems is to unite all countries and peoples. Even in that scenario there would still be problems but giving people the impression we are united and we need to compromise with each other would take subjugation by force off the table.

In reality there is no solution. There is no magic bullet and there never will be.
