A Plea for Humanity

Speaking of Hitler,which some would say that the Bush family is well-equipped to do, . . .





"Greed has poisoned men’s souls - has barricaded the world with hate - has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed." -- Charlie Chaplain, "The Great Dictator" (1940)

"Let us not fight for slavery. Let us fight for freedom!"

BFS, how many of our boys unwittingly fight, only to enslave themselves more? How many of us VOTE to enslave ourselves more?

I have just ordered "The Great Dictator", because of your clip. Thank you.

If George W. grew a little mustache would we see him for what he is?

I'm with headbang8. Thanks for posting the Chaplin clip. I never saw The Great Dictator -- heard of it, of course -- but I wish I had. I wonder, if more of us born after WWII had seen that in our formative years, would we stand by so blithely as our democracy and Constitution are trampled?

I'm rambling, but thanks again.

Hey everyone, thanks for noticing.

I actually found this clip somewhere else and then forgot who posted it first.

Headbang8, I think I'll follow your lead and see where I can dig it up -- it deserves a place in my video library.
