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.
