Re: Greatest Speech Ever?

Yes.

Well, he uses the word democracy, but that's not the kind of world he's describing at all. It's one without government. As long as there's government the wicked will always seek and gain power.

So yeah, I agree.

Re: Greatest Speech Ever?

Yeah, I'm leaning toward Charlie Chaplin myself, though there are so many good ones. I think there might be several in the Rocky series alone.

Added some to the OP if anyone wants to listen.

Re: Greatest Speech Ever?

You included JFK? Talk about a disservice to the actual great speeches by Chaplin and MLK Jr.

Re: Greatest Speech Ever?

I'm assuming it's the famous one with the 'Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country'. Still have it playing now and that bit hasn't happened yet. Not particularly exciting, I have to be honest.

I'll have a look for some more.


EDIT: It just happened, from about 13.55 on the video. Again, not as exciting as films I've seen made it out to be.

Re: Greatest Speech Ever?

I despise that Chaplain speech. Who is he to call us unloved or unnatural for expressing hatred?
People like him cause the problems in the world because they lack the guts to actually stand up to evil, instead they see the wicked as merely having a different opinion. Anything to get out of a fight, eh Charlie?

I'm unloved, I'm unnatural, nice to fucking know. Prick.
