In this written I want to talk about an actual phenomenon in Twentieth century: The globalization. In the simplest terms, globalization is  an current combination of economic, technological, sociocultural, political, and biological factors where involved too the transnational circulation of ideas, language or popular culture.

 At first place, to define globalization like a positive phenomenon is necessary understand its different aspects, thoughts and results. In the economic aspect, globalization has allowed the realization of a global common market where the company just want to sale and be the best producer. Obviously, when we talk about economy, we have to refer us to the advertising and how companies use the media to “enslave” the people. it is true, of course, that because of the globalization, people became in society’s robots.

Also, in the political aspect, globalization means the coexistence or survival between the world powers. polliticaly, United states is the world power because of its strong and rich economy; but it certainly that gradually, china has experienced some tremendous growth within the past decade. So, if china continues to grow, may be that in a few years, china would can become in a world power.

Let me turn to that now at social aspect, where we can meet the spreading of the multiculturalism, it means the acceptance or promotion of multiple ethnic cultures. I am pretending to say that the multiculturalism is important because it let us to learn accepting the different people, but with the spreading of a single thought, every country would can lose its own cultural heritage.

Summarizing, I think the globalization is a positive phenomenon in a proper measure, without excesses and the most important thing:

Using the progress to create a better world, not to destroy it!

Chaplin invites the humanity to live in the love and for the other's service. Also, He thinks about the true face of the progress ¿It is a way to get the happiness or It is just another way to enslave us and "dominate" the world?

Similarly, Chaplin invites the soldiers to fight for liberty instead of to fight for slavery, to love the people and to use the democracy to build a better world.

Chaplin wants people understand the importance of hear the other and accept the persons despite the appearance, the abilities and weaknesses.

In my opinion, the Chaplin’s last speech is an inspiring message of hope and peace for the world, at that time and now too because I think even though Chaplin is dead, right now every day people die because of hunger, poverty and bad governance.

 Charlie Chaplin was born on April 16 of 1889 in London, England. His father died before he was thirteen and his mother was sent to a mental hospital when he was fifteen.

 He went to USA for the first time with the Fred Karno troupe from 1910 to 1912, where He met Mack Sennet who hired him for his studio: the keystone film company. Then, in 1913, he moved to Hollywood, where he became involved in movies, first as an actor and the as a director. Chaplin used mime, slapstick and other visual comedy routine on his movies.


He got married four times, and he had 11 children. Chaplin wrote, directed, and starred in feature films such as The immigrant in 1917, The gold rush in 1925, City lights in 1931, Modern timer in 1936 and The great dictator in 1940. Chaplin died in his sleep in Vevey, Switzerland on Christmas Day 1977. Chaplin always will be remember for his happy soul, his desires to help the people and his methods to criticize the actual situation of his time. Also, He was an example of life for all the world.
