The goodness that is in all man ..

At a time when we celebrate the freedoms that come from living within a democracy, hate, mistrust, misinformation, exaggeration, blame and shame rise to the top of our collective consciousness, dominate our discussions and fill our media. At no other time do I recall such hatefulness.
Despite all of this, I hold strongly to my belief in the goodness that exists within ALL man …

.. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible…

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’s room for everyone and the good earth is rich, and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, … 

You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate only the unloved hate, the unloved and the unnatural … 

You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make 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…. 

~  Charlie Chaplin, The Great Dictator
