You can discover what the state of human mind should be just by observing your mind – The Greatest Speech Ever Made by Charlie Chaplin



If I try to change font color into red letters to emphasize important parts, I have to apply it to almost every sentence.
The content of this speech is about what the state of human mind should be.
However, you cannot think in this way unless you are happy in the real sense of the term.
It is enough for you to have money needed to live.
Seeking excessive amount of money indicates lack of spiritual wealth.
To be happy, you have to eliminate negative thoughts from your mind.
How?
Just by observing your mind as it is.
You can change your mind only by yourself.
You cannot understand what happiness is all about until your mind becomes beautiful like a flower garden.
Global peace starts with the peace around you.

The Greatest Speech Ever Made by Charlie Chaplin (with Japanese subtitle)

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 men, 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.

Greed has poisoned men’s souls; has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped up 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 man; 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 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.

Soldiers! Don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and 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 mind and machine heart.
You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men!
You have a love of humanity in your hears!
You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural.

Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery, fight for liberty!
In the seventeenth chapter, it’s written “the kingdom of Gods is within man”, not one man or a group of men, but in all men! In you!
You, the people, have the power to create machines, the power to create happiness.
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 unite. 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 the power.
But they lie! They do not fulfill their promise! They never will!.
Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people!
Now let us fight to fulfil that promise!
Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national boundaries! 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.

Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite!
