I was just a kid when I watched Great Dictator. I couldn’t understand a lot then and even what I did understand, I perceived as poetic recital with no political meaning. Nothing strange, I grew up in a happy socialist country. My parents were workers in a workers-friendly system. A lot of things happened since then. My country broke up in bloody war, few dictators ruled new countries for a while, we fought for democracy, won, democracy perverted to kleptocracy, now we fight again. People will win again, I know it, it is just a matter of coming together on important issues.
To remind yourself of those important things, you should listen to this speech once in a while.
Fight the power!
