Happy 122nd birthday, Charlie Chaplin

Honor the man by watching his greatest performance, from The Great Dictator:

When I first uploaded that video, I noted that it wasn’t “completely applicable to anything today,” meaning that it isn’t really a perfect match. When Bush was president, comments said that I was wrong. With Obama president, comments say that I’m wrong. Seems to be such a universal and timeless message that no matter who’s running the country, this monologue rings true.
