Good on you, young humanist!

If you pray to anything, you're prey to anything.

Me too, tazmin, me too. But Charlie Chaplin always makes me cry, just usually in a different way.

Here's the original just because I love Chaplin's facial expressions while parodying a reluctant and repentant Hitler. It's even better because it was the first time we heard him on screen. Always knew that silent bastard's smirk had something to say behind it. It's a pity that this speech is as relevant today as it was then some 70 years ago.




As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

I like the guys sentiment but I think his ideas are flawed. He has the right ends in his sight but wants to use the wrong means to achieve them.

I think it is that saddest irony of human history that the people who desire the right ends always try and achieve them through the wrong means whilst the people who desire the wrong ends have the exact means they need to achieve them.

What are the right means? You pretty much have to use what's at hand, which is humanpower, and that's always going to be imperfect.

(I find it especially touching how young he was.)
