This is perhaps one of the best speeches ever delivered. Why? Because its message is the one we need, now more than ever. Yes, it was for a movie, but it was directed toward all of humanity, not just a fictitious audience. It is just as relevant today as it was back then, no matter what the original venue.
This speech is the climax of the movie. Charlie Chaplin rewrote the ending after Hitler invaded France, inserting this inspired speech. His rewritten ending—which is his personal, heartfelt message to humanity—is a masterpiece.
Much of what is said here is in line with the We Can Do This campaign.
I hope you find this as inspiring as I and many others have.
