(Not) The Greatest Speech Ever Made

The Charlie Chaplin speech in the video below has been passed on to me by several people who I consider to be intelligent and educated. While I agree with the issues that are pointed out in the speech as the problem, I strongly disagree with proposed solution: Democracy.

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.” – James Bovard

The founding fathers were very aware that a democratic type of government was destined to fail; democracy is never even mentioned in the US Constitution! If you don’t understand why democracies must fail, or that the USA is in fact NOT designed to be a democracy, please view and digest the excellent JBS video “Overview of America”.

“Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite!”  — this is a battle cry for socialism, as far as I can tell.  Socialism sounds great to people who don’t seem to process that fact that it can only be implemented by the use of force.   (unless you are talking about forming an all-voluntary group of socialist, which is only possible in a libertarian environment)

This speech could be the ‘best ever made’ if it ended with a message of liberty and individual freedom; how educated people could label socialist propaganda as good baffles me.
