A Message For All Of Humanity

"I have many problems in my life. But my  lips don't know that. They always smile." ~ Charlie Chaplin

This inspiring, heartening and empowering speech: 'The Final speech of The Great Dictator, delivered by the character, the Jewish Barber, in Chaplin's 1940 film, The Great Dictator. The Jewish Barber was played by Sir Charles Chaplin,' has become 'The Oasis in the Desert of Lost Hope' as said by Napoleon Hill, in my everyday life. When I lose hope and gain gloom, by reading and re-reading this speech for so many times bring much enthusiasm in me for I always yearn to yield. Each word is enough to influence others. Every sentence weighs more than the gold and the final meaning is worth our complete-attention.

Here is a eternal worth of life's basic lesson:

"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 others’ 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 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 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 and 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 a 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 seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it’s 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 their 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!"

The lifeblood of above dynamic speech are:
 - every individual as long as it lives with its own mind, can do anything/everything, nothing can stop us from achieving giant goals and dreamt dreams because there is eternal power within us, the power of our own minds. The thing we need to know is that we have that power and we can use it in most efficient ways to get hold of it.

-  every one of us have rights to live in this world, we have rights to exercise our powers, use the resources of this world wisely and at the same time we have the responsibility to keep good hold of this mother nature. But one important thing is we don't have any rights to harm/hurt others without their given permission. As long as we live we must abide by these rights and responsibilities.

- there is enough for everybody's needs but not for someone's greeds. Remember, we are born to be a family where we must live through sharing and loving, caring and helping. We have no rights to own the greed because this world is the place of love where one needs to love another through reflection of love.
