You, The People | Bernie 2020

January 27, 2020

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. We all want to help one another, human beings
are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness. Not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. And this world has room for everyone, and
the good Earth is rich can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful,
but we have lost the way. Greed has posioned 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. Machinery that gives us abundance has left
us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynincal. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much, and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More that cleverness, we need kindness and
gentleness. Without these qualities life will be violent,
and all will be lost. The aeroplane and the radio have brought us
closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries
out for the goodness in men – cries out for universal brotherhood – for the unity of us
all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout
the world – millions of despairing men, women, and little children – victims of a system
that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say – do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the
passing of greed – the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die,
and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never
perish. … Don’t give yourselves to brutes – men who
despise you – enslave you – who regiment your lives – tell you what to do – what to think
and what to feel! Who drill you – diet you – treat you like
cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men
– machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate – the unloved and the
unnatural! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written:
“the Kingdom of God is within man” – not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power – the power
to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this
life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then – in the name of democracy – let us use
that power – let us all unite. 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 lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave
the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world – to do away
with national barriers – to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world
where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite

  1. This is a personal video project that I felt inspired to make. My usual content will continue going forward. I felt really compelled to make this. Keep the comments civil 🙂

  2. It is shocking to see an American supporting a socialist for president. I am from Brazil and I have already seen 2 socialist presidents in my country and I can attest to the disaster that was, Brazil almost became Venezuela.

  3. I don't think I will like the taste of dog so I am cool with a no Bernie vote. Despite the fact that Bernie is the absolute worst as someone supported Ron Paul I can see the similarities in how the Democrats are screwing him as to how the Republican's screwed Ron Paul. Maybe the best thing about all this will be the Democrats lose a bunch of people and third parties get a little more love.

  4. "Why Socialism" by Albert Einstein.

    All of you fascists keep crying and screaming McCarthyist myths. love it.

    Go Bernie go!

  5. Bernie supports communism and collectivism. He is the very thing being fought against in this speech. He wants to take away freedoms not fight for real progress.
