One of the most shocking scenes in the film, where Vito Corleone "The Godfather" reunites the five families to propose an amnesty between them, since the war that started with the drug business, has already gone far and nothing of what they say or do will change what has already happened, including the death of Vito's son. It certainly seems to me an act of redemption of the families against the power, because the initiative to leave everything behind is an act of surrender in front of the search of power, where all they would find would be more death and pain.
After the death of Vito Corleone, Michael his son is at the baptism of his nephew, assuming that he will become the "Godfather" of the child. This scene has a great importance in the film, because in many ways it reflects all the immorality that is seen in the plot. When they are in baptism, the priest asks Michael if he believes in God and that if he is willing to give up satan, to which he responds "yes", while this occurs there is a massacre ordered by Michael who has become in the Godfather after the death of his father, to the heads of the 5 families, this in order to take revenge by his father. It is a reflection of how power consumes people and how revenge leads us to become something we always wanted to destroy or someone we did not want to be.
Yokoi Kenji, a Colombian speaker of Japanese descent explains in the following video the importance of not cheating to be better every day. It seems to me very important when he explains that the trap or not doing things right is only valid when someone observes us; Kenji explains how honesty is more important to himself than what society can see; because due to the lack of integrity is that the world lives under that horrible disorder and corruption. It seems to me a good invitation to change and not to make mistakes that harm us as human beings.
The following video is an interview with the richest man in China, Jack Ma, who shares some of his most important thoughts. Personally, when I see this man speaking, I see the passion reflected in this man's dreams, because very clearly, Jack Ma explains how failure did not stop him and how the education system is simply a tool that does not measure the scope and potential of a person. The way I see it is a criticism that invites us to focus on what we want and not on what society wants us to become.
