Merel : All this time, he was right

Meira McMahon : Franklin D. Roosevelt who said, ‘Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to chose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy therefore, is education,’

fatcatbuzz : This dude must have had a crystal ball because he was saying things back then that only a few people said, but what everybody is saying now at the turn of 2014. I miss comedy like this. 

ANDY MOTL : 7 people that dislike this are exactly what he's talking about.

Joe McIlnen : One of the greatest speeches of all time.

Mr. GoodKat : Truth after truth, after truth.

Brian Hansen : so brilliant true and tragic at once

Hache Rodriguez : The worst thing about Trump being president, is that George Carlin is not alive to joke about it hehe

TheSauljohn27 : Just as the Roman Empire fell, So will America one day. . .

Jesse Pinkman : When you're telling the truth to their face and they just laugh.

Bacon Maken : I like how everyone laughed along and agreed with Carlin when he said all of this and now we have Bernie Sanders trying to actually do something about it and everyone calls him "idealistic" and claims that he "doesn't understand economics."

lydia : this needs millions of more views

John Henderson : America is one big lie and you're a fool for believing it.

kal jan : His words are message not comedy .

Mr. GoodKat : "it's called the american dream because you have to asleep to believe it."

Cool Breeze : the greatest comedy finish ever...this is the only thing you can "mic drop" on in our day and age...a truer statement has never been said set aside your ego....and understand what is being done to you you are not that smart....they out spend you out think you, out pray you, and out evil you... you never had a chance america...wake up before that option is removed also

Na'xia Xi'Larn : Is this guy one of the last honest american politicans? He makes sense :-)

GREATWHITE2 : Notice how the applause starts up later and later during Mr. Carlin's routine?! The people in the audience are thinking deeply about what he is saying...

K. De Metter : It's scary how old footage this footage is, and how relevant it still is today.

Sharist Hoola : No true words have ever been spoken.

Evan Demon : This needs a "I'm Bernie Sanders and I approve of this message" afterwards

Brooklyn Boogie140 : Lets wake up ppl & stop being distracted

J PP : Probably more relevant now than then. Divisiveness is another control mechanism. You hear it from the corporate media and the political class daily. If we're fighting each other, we don't have time to notice the puppet strings. Read the comments, serfs are doing their bidding.

MsSweetJames Jones : I watch this video every year around voting time. A shame the full version audio is mute 😣😢
