The 3rd Kind

"War Cry"

(Charlie Chaplin)

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
The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in man, cries out for universal brotherhood, for the unity of us all
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
To 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 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 cannon 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!
Soldiers, don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty!
In the 17th chapter of St Luke it is written, "The Kingdom of God is within man. Not one man nor a group of men, but in all men. In you!"
You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness
You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure
Now let us fight to fulfil that promise!
Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance
Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite!
