For the past few weeks Glenn has shifted his focus to an issue he thinks is one of the most important he's ever covered on his program — and he's covered a lot of big issues over the years. The progressive infiltration of the U.S. education system could change the country as you know it, and that's just one part of what Glenn has begun to uncover. Progressives are systematically removing and replacing the free enterprise system.
Last night on TheBlaze TV, Glenn explained how and why schools are data mining, and how the government is in bed with labor and big corporations using that data.
They're creating a system of state capitalism or "System X"
In the 1940's a book called, "The Road We've Traveled," by Stuart Chase — the man who coined the term "The New Deal" — laid out where the country was headed…where we are now. This morning on radio Glenn explained how it's virtually impossible to find an unaltered version of this book, and that people are literally ripping out the pages and replacing them with pages from other books. Why would they do this?
"They are erasing this history because this absolutely tells the entire story of where we are. This says, this book, the whole premise, The Road We're Traveling, this is what we've designed; this is what it's going to look like in the end," Glenn explained.
The book, written right at the end of WWII, talks about a "Managerial Revolution" — basically, technocrats becoming more powerful that the leaders of the government.
"Who is running Europe right now?" Glenn asked. "Are they elected politicians?"
No — it's the EU and the IMF.
"And who is the guy running Italy? A technocrat. He was not elected. And nobody's saying anything. You have unelected technocrats running Europe and nobody's saying anything," Glenn said.
The writer, Stuart Chase, went on to explain:
"The "Managerial Revolution" is just the first part. "The first intelligent attempt to understand what is coming that I have seen," he wrote. "Many more studies will be needed before the mystery is cleared up on what this exactly will look like and what we will call it. But we are going to lay out something called X, which is displacing the system of free enterprise all over the world. If we do not yet know what to call it, we can at least describe its major characteristics. And here is what is replacing free enterprise. And it says "free enterprise into X."
A strong centralized government; an executive arm growing at the expense of the legislative and judicial arms; in some countries power is consolidated into a dictator, issuing decrees. The control of banking, credit, and security exchanges by the government."
Sound like what's going on today?
Glenn continued reading:
"The underwriting of employment by the government — either through armaments or public works. The underwriting of Social Security by the government, old age pensions, mothers pensions, unemployment insurance and the like. The underwriting of food, housing and medical care by the government. The United States is already experimenting with providing these essentials. Other nations are far down this road. The use of deficit spending techniques to finance these under-writings. The annually balanced budget has lost its old‑timey feel. The abandonment of gold in favor of a managed currency. The control of foreign trade by the government with increasing emphasis on bilateral agreements. The control of natural resources and an increasing emphasis on self‑sufficiency. The control of energy sources such as hydroelectric power, coal, petroleum, and natural gas. The control of transportation, railway, highway, airway, waterway. The control of agricultural production. The control of labor organizations. The enlistment of young men and young women in youth corps, devoted to health, discipline, community service, and ideologies consistent with those of the authorities."
The only thing on Stuart's list thats really debatable as having been achieved is "The enlistment of young men and young women in youth corps."
"Everything else is already done," Pat stated.
Glenn quickly reminded Pat and the audience that there already are work corps for the youth. "It's the AmeriCorps."
"Heavy taxation with special emphasis on estates, meaning what you leave behind, your will, and incomes of the rich. Not much taking over of properties or industries in the old socialistic sense, but the formula of the future is control without ownership. It's interesting to recall the same formula is used by the management of great corporations in depriving stockholders of power. And finally, the state control of communications and propaganda."
Remember, this was written in the 1940's — the end of WWII — but how much of this is mirroring where the country is today or, at the very least, where it's headed?
"The strong central government, absolutely been done, and we're now getting to the point to where the states have no rights," Glenn explained.
But the danger of this system is how it's tying everything together to control labor, media, education, and banking, all by linking together with big corporations. And it's starting in the schools through data mining, which Glenn explained last night on TV.
Glenn's theory is that big government and big corporations are linking together to achieve their mutual collective goals. Corporations need capital for investments, educated and trained workers, and global markets to be successful. The government needs power to control and plan. When the two join together, they control labor, medical, guns, DHS, banks, education, the media, and food, allowing them to control, limit, train, deceive you, all while building a global marketplace they have control over.
The end result comes close to China, where the state can take kids and train them for certain jobs, has control and oversight over the media, censors the internet, and heavily regulates every aspect of the lives of the people.
Sound crazy? Glenn went on to explain how involved GE and Microsoft are involved in Common Core, currently marching its way into schools across the country.
"I find it interesting that NBC, the arm of this government, is what network? MSNBC. MSNBC was owned by what energy corporation? GE. What does the "MS" in MSNBC stand for? Microsoft. Now, neither GE, nor Microsoft have anything to do with MSNBC anymore, but isn't it fascinating that GE and Microsoft got together, that now they were the ones who started the propaganda machine. And they are the ones that are now behind Common Core," Glenn said.
