Liberty will never perish
‘We want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery’. Lees hier de speech van Charlie Chaplin. #nieuwbewustzijn
Voor de cover van het nieuwste Food Inspiration Magazine, met het thema ‘nieuw bewustzijn’, maakte onze oud-collega Rainier van IJzendoorn een inspirerende video met de speech van Charlie Chaplin uit de film The Great Dictator uit 1940. En ja, deze speech is nog steeds toepasbaar op deze tijd.

We all want to help one another
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 man - white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s 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.
We think too much and feel too little
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 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.
Liberty will never perish
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.
Een ommekeer is merkbaar, we zijn op weg naar een nieuw bewustzijn.
