An excerpt from The Great Dictator: Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in… The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together.

Not to forget the massive hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and the eastern seaboard of North America. And if that is not enough, you may want to pay a visit to the Philippines right now… In Doha, we asked ‘If not us then who? If not now, then when?
