The Great Dictator Speech -
Note from Tom.
It's time we stopped
complaining and moaning about police violence,
riots, racism and our current dictator in the
Whitehouse. Our pretence at revulsion is
disgraceful. Real people in a civilized society must
act! We must demonstrate peacefully and remind
ourselves that our failure to do so only ensures
that many more citizens of this decaying empire will
find a knee on their necks. Silence is collusion.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself and do something to
ensure that future generations should never need to
ask what did you do to prevent the USA from
continuing to trash our dreams and destroy our
planet. Get off your knees and do something.

We don't want to hate
and despise one another
And this world has 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 us
abundance has left us in want
knowledge has made us cynincal
Our cleverness, hard and
We think too much, and
feel too little
More than machinery, we
More that 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
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
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!
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!
You, the people have the
power - the power to create machines
The power to create
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
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
They never will!
Dictators free themselves
but they enslave the people!
Now let us fight to fulfil
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
In the name of democracy,
let us all unite
