Bryant and Stratton College Dorothy Day, MLK & Charlie Chaplin Speeches Analysis

Bryant and Stratton College

Question Description

I’m stuck on a Philosophy question and need an explanation.

Compare the speeches of Dorothy Day at Union Square in 1965, MLK at Riverside Church in 1967 and Charlie Chaplin in the conclusion of his 1944 movie (last one found in Resources under "Chaplin Speech"). What messages for peace in that time (and our time) did they contain? Do you agree? Why or why not? From All Quiet on the Western Front, there's a scene of Paul, the German soldier, and a wounded French one in a foxhole; Paul says the two could be brothers, "but they never want us to know that, do they?" Who is he referring to? Who are "they"? What is the Catholic Worker Movement and its relation to peace?

(Klejment et al, 1996).
MLK's speech was similar to that of Dorothy's. He advocated for the end of Vietnam and
called for the signing of a peace agreement. His speech condemned the Vietnam War and urged

of the poor and if America cont...
