...but we have lost the way...greed has poisoned men's soul...let us fight ...to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason!





I am sorry but I don't want to be an emperor.
1:09
That's not my business.
1:11
I don't want to rule or conquer anyone.
1:14
I should like to help everyone:
1:16
Jew, gentile, black man, white.
1:19
We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that.
1:22
We want to live by each other's happiness, not misery.
1:26
We don't want to hate one another.
1:28
In this world,
1:29
the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.
1:33
The way of life can be free and beautiful
1:36
but we have lost the way.
1:38
Greed has poisoned men's souls,
1:41
has barricaded the world with hate,
1:43
has goose-stepped us into bloodshed.
1:46
We have developed speed but have shut ourselves in.
1:49
Machinery has left us in want.
1:52
Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness, hard and unkind.
1:56
We think too much and feel too little.
1:59
More than machinery we need humanity.
2:01
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.
2:05
Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost...
2:09
The aeroplane and radio have brought us closer.
2:12
These inventions cry out for the goodness in man,
2:15
cry out for universal brotherhood, for the unity of us all.
2:18
Even now my voice is reaching millions,
2:21
millions of despairing men, women and children,
2:24
victims of a system that makes men torture
2:27
and imprison innocent people.
2:29
To those who can hear me I say, do not despair.
2:33
The misery upon us is but the passing of greed,
2:36
the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.
2:39
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die,
2:43
and the power they took will return to the people.
2:46
So long as men die liberty will never perish.
2:51
Soldiers, don't give yourselves to brutes,
2:54
men who despise you, enslave you,
2:56
regiment your lives, tell you what to think and feel,
3:00
who drill you, treat you like cattle and use you as cannon fodder.
3:04
Don't give yourselves to these men,
3:06
machine men with machine minds and machine hearts.
3:10
You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men!
3:14
You have the love of humanity in you.
3:16
Don't hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural hate.
3:20
Soldiers, don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty!
3:23
St Luke says, ''The Kingdom of God is within man.''
3:27
Not in one man nor a group of men, but in all men. In you!
3:31
You have the power to create machines,
3:34
the power to create happiness.
3:36
You have the power to make this life free and beautiful,
3:39
to make this life a wonderful adventure.
3:41
In the name of democracy, let us use that power.
3:44
Let us all unite, let us fight for a new world,
3:48
a world that will give men a chance to work,
3:51
that will give youth a future and old age security.
3:54
Promising these things, brutes have risen.
3:57
But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!
4:01
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people.
4:04
Now let us fight to fulfil that promise!
4:08
Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers,
4:12
to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance.
4:15
Let us fight for a world of reason,
4:18
a world where science and progress will lead to the happiness of all.
4:22
Soldiers, in the name of democracy,
