This Video Gave Me Goosebumps

This is a video of the speech from Charlie Chaplin's film, The Great Dictator. Though the film was a comedy and a bizarre satire (though powerful critique) of Hitler's Nazi regime, the words in this speech are incredibly stirring, and they've been mashed up with images of conflict in the Middle East as the people over there rise up against repressive governments. And dear goodness, for an actor known best by his silent film work, Charlie Chaplin has a POWERFUL voice. Enjoy!
