Glenn interviews futurist David Gelernter about the future of education

On radio this morning, Glenn introduced David Gelernter, a futurist who people go to for consulting on upcoming trends in technology and other key institutions and elements of life. Where are we going to be in five years? Ten? Those are the things people need to know when crafting big plans.

"David explain just a little bit first the damage that you see that is being done by our educational system," Glenn said after introducing him.

"Well the damage is enormous. It's damage in the sense what's omitted and damage in the sense of what's taught. And that's why part of America-Lite I have to admit is a prophecy of doom. Although we can escape this doom using the Internet."

"Colleges they're failing to teach children and students how to be Americans. Who they are. They're failing to teach who they are. Who this nation is. What your duties are to this nation. What it is to be a citizen. What's your responsibility to the community and to the world and what it means to be an American. Why it's a historically unique thing to be an American," Gelernter said

Gelernter also said that teachers today are not only forgetting to teach how America can be a force for good, but they teach that America is possibly a danger to the rest of the world.

"It's not the patriotism means nothing to them. It's not they don't know any history. What they do know is wrong. They see United States as part of a danger," he explained.

"Students and children learn as much as they can at the right level, and under the supervision of their own parents more than teachers and schools. So it seems to me first we need local Internet schools. We need to combine the global reach of the Internet which allows me to choose courses for my children or allow my children to look for courses themselves from all over the country wherever smart people have something to say."

"But we can't merely globalize things. Because neighborhoods and communities are tremendously important," he explained.

He explained it was important to focus on the local community bonds, and to do so the children need to be sitting together while engaged in class - even if those teachers are coming mainly through computers and the internet.

He also explained that there need to be a new profession of people who also directly mentor students to make sure they are learning the material and staying on track, but not necessarily Harvard, or Yale or these big progressive institutions.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
