Here’s a revolutionary idea to fight big government overregulation

Charles Murray believes the country as we know it is over. We live in an increasingly lawless country, where only people with money have access to the courts and even those with money are burdened by countless regulations that handcuff them from doing any real business.

"The Constitution is broken. We could have nine Antonin Scalias or nine Clarence Thomases on the court. They could not reverse a handful of decisions from 1937 to 1943, because if they did, they would be saying about 90% of what the federal government does is unconstitutional. No president would enforce such a Supreme Court decision. The legitimacy of the Supreme Court would be shattered. It can’t happen," Charles said.

"Point number two, we live under an increasingly lawless legal system," Charles said. "If I can’t afford to enter the court system when I have a legitimate grievance that I know I would win if I had enough money, but if I can’t afford to get into it because I can’t afford either the fees or the time that it’s going to take to litigate it, in what sense am I protected by the rule of law?"

Even worse is the legal system created by the regulatory state.

"We have a large extralegal system called the administrative state which lies outside the ordinary rule of law," Charles said. "If the OSHA comes after you, you don’t go to an ordinary court. You go to an administrative court in which the judge works for the Department of Labor or OSHA. The prosecutor works for OSHA."

Charles continued, "The due process of law is in many cases not available to you. You don’t have to be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, just a preponderance of the evidence, and guess what, if you’re found guilty and you appeal it, the people on the Court of Appeals work for OSHA. This violates a foundational principle of American law, which is legislation is supposed to be administered by—it’s supposed to be created by the legislature, and an independent judiciary is supposed to adjudicate things. But the entire regulatory state violates all that."

So how do we fight back? Charles thinks you can overwhelm the regulatory state by having people guilty of small infractions fight the battles in court.

"I talked about earlier about somebody coming out of nowhere and providing legal support to ordinary people, but let’s do it on a big scale. I call one version of it the Madison Fund, and it would be a couple hundred million bucks. I’m talking big money. The purpose of it would not be to defend the innocent. It would be to defend the guilty, people who are guilty of violating stupid, pointless regulations. And the idea is to overload the enforcement capacity of the regulatory agencies," Charles explained.

"I want to have an incentive for the bureaucrats to back off, or as one of my friends put it, I want to pour sugar into the government’s gas tank. Once you establish that principle, here’s your endpoint. I want the regulatory agencies to act like state troopers on interstate highways. So, you know and I know that if the speed limit is 65, the flow of traffic on most interstates is about 72, okay? A majority of the American citizens are engaged in civil disobedience because the state troopers can’t stop everybody, so they stop people who are going crazy fast, people who are driving erratically," he continued.

"That’s what I want for the entire regulatory agencies so that they don’t go after us when we have a trivial violation that hasn’t harmed anybody. They reserve their enforcement capability for people who have caused some damage. That would be a big improvement. It doesn’t get laws off the books, okay? It doesn’t get regulations off the books. It changes the way they’re enforced to something that’s a lot more reasonable. No harm, no foul," Charles concluded.

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
