"In this world there's room for everyone. The good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls - has barricaded the world with hate - has goosestepped us into misery and bloodshed... Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. MORE THAN MACHINERY, WE NEED HUMANITY! More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost... Even now, my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. For those who can hear me I say, do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress, the hate of men who will pass and dictators die. AND THE POWER THEY TOOK FROM THE PEOPLE WILL RETURN TO THE PEOPLE! And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. SOLDIERS, DON'T GIVE YOURSELVES TO BRUTES - MEN WHO DESPISE YOU, ENSLAVE YOU, WHO REGIMENT YOUR LIVES - TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO THINK, AND WHAT TO FEEL - WHO DRILL YOU, DIET YOU, TREAT YOU LIKE CATTLE, USE YOU AS CANON FODDER!!! DON'T GIVE YOURSELVES TO THESE UNNATURAL MEN - MACHINE MEN - WITH MACHINE MINDS AND MACHINE HEARTS. YOU ARE NOT MACHINES! YOU ARE NOT CATTLE! YOU ARE MEN! YOU HAVE THE LOVE OF HUMANITY IN YOUR HEART. You don't hate. Only the unloved hate..."

The Greatest Speech Ever Made
