[Best Version] The Great Dictator Speech – Charlie Chaplin + Time – Hans Zimmer (INCEPTION Theme)


I’m sorry 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 man – 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 aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men 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 is now 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 brutes men 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, 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 not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “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 fulfil that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! 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 all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

  1. I wish you all a happy new year! 🎊
    I am glad that you still enjoy the video, and hope you will continue to enjoy it in 2018. If you want to, check out my new series, which is about visiting culturally significant places and exploring historical mysteries. Legacy Hunt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oym1d96T4_E&list=PLVOQMrRdp_Bk3piiFwQcwq6QQfd-OXMjU
    This is something I am very excited about and that is just starting out. I am very curious to know what you guys think about it! Let me know if you drop by. As always, thanks for your support! 🤙🏼

  2. Wow. I’m speechless and more people need to hear this if not everyone. The world had indeed taken a turn for the worse but we can change that. Humans can be so cruel😔

  3. This is so very true even in the modern day life on this earth. Thank you charlie and thank you LinkTheCoward for posting this. This hits me to the core every time

  4. I know it is impossible, but to be honest, just an idea, how much effort andmoney will it cost to translate this and broadcast it around the world. And if that isn't possible how much will it cost just to broadcast it duiring a superbowl
    Just think about it maybe if we put it in the way of our entertainment we will learn. And we will see what we've done, what we're doing and where we've gone wrong

  5. Beware the quiet man for while others speak, he watches and while others act, he plans and when they finally rest… He strikes

  6. Charlie Chaplin May be best known for silent films, but in his first sound film he gave us the most important speech of all time

  7. Bravo! So that's 1940 humor. Imagine if he lived today. He'd be flooding youtube with original content. Or maybe not, with all the PC culture we have now. lol

  8. NOT THE BEST VERSION AT ALL.You made the speech unhearable by moments. perhaps you should have concentrate on the essential.

  9. Hate, greed, intolerance, lack of reason, lack of empathy, lack of kindness and gentleness, lies, torture, bitterness, erecting national barriers, machine men with machine minds and machine hearts… AKA Donald J Trump and his crony GOP sycophants

  10. You know, people here said that what he said is true but we are still not doing anything, but guess what, We Puerto Ricans managed to make the gov. of Puerto Rico quit in less than 12 days. 12 DAYS!!! And Puerto Rico is a small island. If we can do it. Then everyone can. (Btw it was a few weeks when the march started).

  11. So, can we just take a second to talk about how great this acting is. Can anyone name a modern film where an actor gave anything close to a 4 minute monologue with perfectly executed emotion?

    Although I am obviously largely making a rhetorical point, this is actually a real question. Does anyone know anything relatively modern that comes close to comparing to this?

  12. Although the speech itself is great, it's the music in this video that really makes this video amazing!

  13. When planet explodes..millions of decomposed bodies floating around in space being picked off by Zyrtavoolins..huge alien winged beasts..please explode earth..please.

  14. Freedom is not free.
    Every Generation needs to gain their own freedom.
    If we are not part of the solution, then we are the problem.
    – Shiv Khera.

  15. Hitler is said to have watched this film several times in his private theater. Sad he couldn't get the message and wake up.

  16. gave me goosebumps! 70 years ago Chaplin delivered this speech when the world was gripped by greed, totalitarianism, hatred and racism and his speech is still relevant today as it was then. A timeless classic.

  17. enough with rudeness an behaviour that is not required in our fine earth, I don't care about evil. I care for freedom and pupils who are sharing with love and kindness. WE MUST STOP THIS NOW I am young and I am afraid but I know everyone single one of us are capable of restoring faith and humanity… SO IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM EVERYTHING THAT IS OUT THERE WHO IS KIND , AND CAPABLE OF REPEATING GOODNESS , DONT GIVE UP. WHOS WITH ME TO DO THIS

  18. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Nobelprize winner and himself victim of the Bolshevikparty in Gulag.

    “You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred, they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime is proof that the global media in the hands of the perpetrators.”

    “We cannot state that all Jews are Bolsheviks. But without Jews, there would never have been Bolshevism. For a Jew, nothing is more insulting than the truth. The blood maddened Jewish terrorists have murdered sixty-six million in Russia from 1918 to 1957.”
    – Alexander Solzhenitsyn

    Putins statement: 80-85% of the Bolshevik-party were jews.
    ..
    Quote from the jew Leon Trotsky and the founder of the red army.

    Leon Trotsky intentionally drove Europeans to "cannibalism"
    In 1921 messengers representing starving peasants asked Trotsky för help he said this:
    "You are starving? This is not famine yet, when your women eat their children then you may come and say we are starving."
    ..
    For example Almost all media, banking, and influencial bransches of the world is owned by jews. Is that not very risky knowing from the Talmud that the jews secretly hate: 1. Christians 2. Whites 3. All non-jews. 4. Want world domination.

    All MY statements can you find in the Talmud.

    Have a good day!

  19. How to save the human race? Start a war…. how to destroy the world? Start a war. It is contradicting to go to war. People say war brings us closer but if you spend your entire life burning everything down then you won't have anything left to burn.

    There will be no life….

  20. To all the feminists who are triggered by how much times he said men. Charlie is obviously refering men as human, people. So dont say he isn't fighting for women too.

  21. We as natural human animals we need to be better. The potential that we are as creatures, we can't waste it. We must not take it for granted and lose it all for inability to humble ourselves and keep our selves grounded. We must remember everyday and remind ourselves of what we are..natural earth creatures. Trees and plants are the base of us all, amd we are the ambitious dream, the fire to this begining and the barrier to water flush. We live in a circle and we must also give time for it. Fight for it. Give back to it be thankful for it and this will make us better people. Better beings more appreciative beings. A high that can only be reached. Nirvana through the senses can only be gained through appreciation.

  22. Wonderful speech that leaves one speechless. Only have to disregard the context. Is the irony part of the comedy? Drama then? Dark humor? But this is truth being spoken to people who "don't" gravitate towards escapism, right? The dictator clearly isn't talking to sheeple. Maybe they're the ones who disliked this video? Is he a dictator or an actor playing a dictator essentially breaking character? Lots of dictators give speeches like this to people's whose minds and bodies they want to control…seems legit.

  23. Wow. I'm speechless, I don't even know how, but I'm speechless. His words touch me like few things in this huge world. It's kinda beautiful, all the facts are real, we are living this even if this speech date from dozens of years ago

  24. "We think too much and feel too little!" always stood out to me from the first time i saw this and has repeated in my head since

  25. Those magical words😍. Love you Charlie forever. Every word, Every emotion will be remembered.

  26. Chaplin was way ahead of His time. I enjoyed watching his stuff on Saturday mornings. When I was a child. I would like to see that movie the Dictator.

  27. this popped on my feed and this day, indian army is killing thousands of kashmiris, stealing their homes, just like israel is doing to Palestine ! and world is blind, they dont care, because these are Muslim countries who are suffering !

  28. All has been lost you can't be nice to anyone they see you as a week weird person it's sad it's truly sad everyone has lost their soul and morals

  29. The most beautiful, most important, most powerful speech ever made, and it is sadly, still relevant. Recorded in 1940, we still have much to learn from what this man said..❤

  30. internet and smartphones have brought us closer together only to leave us even more lonely than we ever were . hmm talking about unity of soul …

  31. Lyrics :

    Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes – men 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, 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 not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!

    In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “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.

Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!

  32. That music score ruined this video for me. It literally added nothing, but took the ability to clearly hear these words.

  33. Very impassioned, very caring and very wrong on many fronts. These are the kind of speeches that put men in the shackles of socialism.

  34. Politics have gotten us to where he feared we would become. We are too greedy. We want too much of others while we give so little. We will perish because we dont like to see others happy. We sleep happily because we know there are those who are miserable. Instead of sleepless night because we know plenty go to sleep hungry.
    That is the saddest part of life nowadays.
    These words are said alot these days. "Atleast im not you."
