Charlie Chaplin, A King in New York, USA
1957, 3 min 58 sec
Rupert, a young editor of a school magazine, gets interrupted while reading Kalr Marx’ work to be introduced to ‘Your Majesty’. He seizes the opportunity to explain passionately why he dislikes all forms of government,since its power is antagonizing the people.
According to Rupert, politics are rules imposed upon the people.The importance of a passport and the restriction of freedom when lack of it is infuriating to the young man.
Since he believes there is no chance to compete with monoplized businesses he concludes that monopoly is the menace of free enterprise.Hence, the monopoly of power is a menace to freedom.
