Storyboard Text

  • 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; Jews, Gentile, black men, 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.      
  • Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, woman, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those that can hear me, I say, "Don't be afraid." So long as men die, liberty will never perish. 
  • Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to these brutes. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men with machine hearts and machine minds. You are not machines! You are men! You, the people, have 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! So let us fight to free that world! To do away with hate and intolerance!
  • *Cheering*
  • Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will led to all men's happiness! So soliders, in the name of democracy, LET US ALL UNITE!
  • Hooray!
  • *Sniffs* Thank you!
