O Grande Chaplin


Leiam se tiverem paciência. Vale a pena. Um verdadeiro hino à humanidade, à força de espírito e de vontade. Uma singela homenagem a uma das pessoas que mais admiro desde sempre.
" I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business.I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone - if possible - Jew, Gentile - black men - white.We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.

The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. 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. Without these qualities life will be violent and all will be lost.

The aero-plane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these things cries out for the goodness in man, cries out for universal brotherhood, for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say:

"Do not despair." The misery that has come upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.

Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to these brutes who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle and use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are men! With the love of humanity in your hearts! Don't hate! Only the unloved hate, the unloved and the unnatural!

Soldiers! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!

In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man, nor a group of men, but in ALL men!

In you!

You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines. The power to create happiness!You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then, in the name of democracy, let us use that power, let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security.

By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to the happiness of us all.
Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us unite! "

-CHARLES CHAPLIN, O Grande Ditador (The Great Dictator)

Grande Chaplin ! Grande Filme !O discurso que trancreves, penso que mesmo no fim do "Grande Ditador", é de um conteúdo humano, social, moral e político excepcional, quando devia ser o B-A-BA de qualquer comunidade humana.
Ao G! por nos ter recordado coisas importantes e bonitas.
