Attached is the printable text of Charlie Chaplin's (1889 – 1977) final speech in "The Great Dictator" (1940):

"This, the much-discussed final speech in "The Great Dictator", is more than a climax and conclusion to Chaplin's newest film, it is a statement of Chaplin's belief in humanity, a belief in which his creative powers and artistic development are deeply rooted."

"Hope...I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone, if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white."

"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. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lied!..."
