Charlie Chaplin Breaks his Silence

And he does it in style!

The Great Dictator was made in 1940, but if it had been made ten years later Chaplin would have been McCarthy'ed for sure.

It is aimed at all people and all regimes. It's a very universal appeal to the good side in all of us.

I find it very inspiring and stirring. It makes this pale immitation seem all the more nauseaus:
