Charlie Chaplin and Social Credit

on Thursday, 01 June 2006. Posted in Testimonies

Most people have heard of Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977), probably the most popular screen comic of all times with his character of the tramp that captivated audiences all over the world. But did you know that Chaplin was in favor of Douglas's Social Credit? He mentioned it himself in his autobiography, published in 1964:

"During the filming of City Lights, the stock market crashed. Fortunately, I was not involved because I had read Major C. H. Douglas's Social Credit, which analysed and diagrammed our economic system... I was so impressed with his theory that in 1928, I sold all my stocks and bonds, and kept my capital fluid."

On another page, Chaplin wrote: "I was discussing Major Douglas's book, Economic Democracy, and said how aptly his credit theory might solve the present world crisis."
