The 10% tipping point

With all of the radical leftists running around, trying to swing the mood of the nation back towards sanity can seem like an overwhelming task. How many people will it take to do it? Scientists think they have the answer: 10%. According to a fascinating study, scientists say if 10% of people (on any topic) strongly believe in something - 100% of the time it becomes the norm for society.

"There's a new report out called Minority Rules:  Scientists Discover Tipping Point for the Spread of Ideas.  When a number of committed opinion holders is below 10%, there is no visible progress in the spread of ideas.  It would literally take the amount of time comparable to age the universe for this size group to reach the majority when it's under 10%," Glenn explained.

"Look what 10% of this population has done because really only 10 or 11, maybe 13% of this population is as radical, is, you know, communist, anti‑American kind of group.  Look what they've done.  Well, there's more of us than that.  But the secret is we must know what is true.  We must know it to the core of our being."

"Once the number grows above 10%, the idea spreads like a flame.  In those countries where dictators who were in power for decades, they were suddenly overthrown in just a few weeks when true believers reached 10%.  An important aspect of the finding is that the percent of committed opinion holders required to shift the majority opinion does not change significantly regardless of the type of network in which the opinion holders are working.  In other words, the percentage of committed opinion holders required to influence a society remains at approximately 10% regardless of how or where that opinion starts and spreads in the society.  So it doesn't have to be, it can be word of mouth, it can be Facebook, it can be West Coast, East Coast, doesn't matter."

How does this affect you? Glenn said, "You have to tip the scales.  I want you to be someone who is 100% sure in what you believe.  Figure out what you believe on God and the Constitution and the country, man's freedom.  Figure out what is true.  Doesn't mean you have all the answers.  It means you know you're on the right path and you can back it up with historic fact.  Begin to tip the scales."

Glenn encouraged listeners to follow e4 - education, enlightenment, empowerment, an entrepreneurship. He also said listeners should join The Challenge and GBTV to gather with like minded individuals and spread ideas.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
