This is a very profound speech that holds true today more than ever about the fading human condition. Charlie Chaplin was way ahead of his time. This YouTube Video really accentuates this brilliant speech from the "Great Dictator"

 

 

This was from 1940. Makes you wonder how people got so stupid over the last 77 years. Progress for humanity? I think not.

 

BOCK!

Humanity has always seemed to be 'modern' when the pride of economics is concerned. This giant machine of industry created over the eons has provided humans with a means to trade with each other en masse. Logically, one can figure that the system could support the basics for all men and women. All the extras can be got with trade. Too bad the few at the top believe they own the whole world and have used the machine dishonestly to support their own beliefs of happiness. 

 

Will this machine of precision and quantification be a monument to the demise of all mankind?

 

Not everything runs perfectly. Someone has to go in and do the dirty job when the mechanisms fail. 

 

The upgrades continue...

Good subject CS. Charlie Chaplin could say much without ever saying a word. The tramp character never had to speak. He saved the best till last when he had something really important to say. From what I hear he took a long time crafting that movie. He wanted it to be special. I think Chaplin can rank up there with Kubrick as one of the greatest directors of all time.

The scene in the barbershop is classic. It shows how huge egos compete with each other to get themselves in the higher position.

Charlie Chaplin!

 

One of my favorites.

 

He and many others formed the foundation for the power of movie magic upon the soul of all mankind.

It's interesting how the ideas created in the movies flow into the mind of pop culture. Those in the beginning of this age of flickering light new the value of the stars they created in the eyes of the people. Propaganda to keep people informed for both good or ill. The symbolic structures created in these moving images managed (and still do, better than ever) to instill the perfect form of mass hypnotism into the heart of society. Never before had such a medium of general programming been possible. 
 
Silent film had more communication power over a wider range of diversity. It communicated in any spoken language; crossing all culture barriers. Where ever a screen could be set up one could see a single world view through the gates of moving time. Giving it strength to tell a story to inspire anyone from anywhere. Everybody knew who Charlie Chaplin was. No dubbing required.

The social engineers of the day caught on real quick to this power. Edward Bernays for one. This thread ties in with social priming quite well:

After getting mistaken for a Communist demonstrator, the Tramp is thrown in the clink. In the prison mess hall, a hulking prisoner sitting next to him refuses to let him have any of the communal bread. Meanwhile, the shifty looking guy on the other side of him dumps a bunch of “nose powder” into a saltshaker before getting hauled away by the prison guards. Chaplin sprinkles liberal amounts of this “salt” on his meal and soon he starts showing all of the telltale symptoms of cocaine use – bugged out eyes, excessive energy and unshakeable self-confidence. He also shows some less common side effects like compulsive twirling and a propensity to jam food in his ear.
 
With his newfound chemical courage, Chaplin not only faces down this thuggish neighbor but he also single-handedly thwarts a prison break. The authorities are so pleased with Chaplin’s coke-addled heroics that they release him. So remember, kids, drugs can get you out of (and more likely back into) jail.
