This quote was written and performed by Charlie Chaplin in his 1940 film "The Great Dictator." I came across the clip it is from on Youtube shortly after reading the brief for this Typography competition and the quote was too powerful, to pertinent not to use.
My concept for the brief was to use colour rather than shape to show the intensity of the words and the way they offer a choice for "soldiers" (I think here Chaplin meant everyone) could reject brutality and strive toward liberty.
I readily acknowledge that this quote is a selective section of the whole speach from the film but it beautifully reflects my personal politics and phill-osophy.
