Are we on the verge of a new renaissance?

You may have noticed that Glenn's focus on technology and our future. Technology is paving the way of the future and each new invention is working towards the change. Today on radio, Glenn compared our current time to the "Dark Ages," and he believes we are headed for a new age of enlightenment and understanding.

The Renaissance period went from the 14th to the 17th century in Europe and followed the Middle Ages. The world headed out of a period of "cultural decline and stagnation", and headed to a new age of learning and discovery

Today,  the internet puts the worlds information at your fingertips - and that's just beginning. Listen below to Glenn's powerful analysis as to what our future might hold.

Rough Transcript Below:

GLENN: I don't think we're headed toward the industrial revolution. I think we're entering a period now that could be remembered as a renaissance. And the Dark Ages, the way they were remembered, I believe that we could be entering such a period of -- of enlightenment, that 50 years or 100 years from now, we look back at these days as new Dark Ages. Because the world becomes so free. That's quite a concept.

But when you understand that everything is about to change and it allows people to be totally free and think in totally different ways. I mean, think about what caused the renaissance. The renaissance was really caused by the printing press. Once the printing press was out, people had access to knowledge. They were no longer slaves.

What is the modern-day internet? What is Google, other than a printing press? And unlike the printing press where you had to go to Gutenberg and get it -- or you had to go -- yeah, the Gutenberg printing press. Right? Yeah, instead of going to Gutenberg, you can do it yourself. In a very short period of time, you'll be able to have a bunch of recycled material in your house and a 3D printer. You want new tennis shoes, print them from the recycled material that's in your house already. Print them. You'll be able to print anything you want. It will go beyond the book. It's now print anything that you want.

So should we choose, we're at the beginning of a renaissance. And the church and state, if you will, whatever it is that people worship and those institutions that try to hold on to power, they are going to go through, you know, their period of locking people in the tower and trying to stop it. An inquisition because they'll lose their power. But they lose in the end.

The world is on to something that could be very, very bright. We were talking about the self-driving car earlier today. I will show you some video that will absolutely blow your mind. Blow your mind. Of stuff that has just been released, not at -- remember when you said to go to auto shows and they used to have the concept cars. They're not releasing these now through the auto shows. They're releasing these now through the tech conferences.

That's where they're introducing new cars. Cars are not cars anymore. They're just another thing that's high-tech.

STU: This sounds crazy, but phones are no longer phones.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: Yes, they accomplish what a phone did. But they're not phones anymore.

GLENN: Right. I was talking to some people about Oculus. And --

STU: The virtual reality --

GLENN: Yeah, excuse me. They believe that Oculus is the first real new invention since the television for entertainment. Everything else has been based on the television. Your phone is basically a little television.

STU: Right. Like you're getting -- you're streaming from Netflix, but that's just another way of delivering content from your television.

GLENN: And your phone is another screen. Instead of the tube, it's a flat screen. So Oculus is the first big leap out of television. And the way Oculus is being looked at now is, think of Google Glass, the way Google Glass is in front of you all the time. We'll all have glasses, if you want to enjoy Oculus. We'll all have glasses. But everything, just like minority report, on my glasses, if you imagine that you're wearing glasses now, and they wrap around -- you can see periphery vision as well. As you're walking --

STU: Not really though. You're seeing it through the screen. It blocks out completely so --

GLENN: I don't think that's the future. That is now.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

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.
