How do we avoid the evil mistakes of the past?

Theologian Alice von Hildebrand, wife of Dietrich von Hildebrand and a harsh critic of Hitler’s Nazi Germany, joined the program last night. She spoke with Glenn about the evils of the past and how to avoid them in the present. The interview covers the importance of faith and family, and how the world can turn back on the path of righteousness. Don’t miss this interview with a truly remarkable woman.

Watch the full interview on TheBlaze TV, below is a highlight from the episode.

Glenn: We have started a movement called Never Again is Now. We promised each other that we what would not let genocide happen again, that we would stand up to insane things. They are happening again in the world. We’re trying to find ways to give people courage to stand up and do what you and your husband did, to stand up against all odds and say this is truth, that is not. What advice do you have?

Alice: You know, two things: Number one, to reestablish the greatness of the family which is being destroyed. You see, one of the things which is so heartbreaking is that if you commit yourself, you don’t commit yourself. You’re playing a game. Instead of understanding, you know, I happen to know quite a few people who have a very happy marriage, and what does it imply? They have tasted the true sweetness of love, which is two things: Number one, that you see a beauty in another person. In some way, you’re given the asset of seeing this person is beautiful.

Of the sight of beauty—I’m quoting Plato—wings grow to our soul, and my heart is such because you are beautiful. The very moment that you are beautiful, I start loving you. Sometimes this vision is serving. Sometimes it is given in faith when I believe that all men are creatures of God.

But the second thing is the very moment that you love, you want to give. You give yourself. Today, you say to myself, how much can I get out of it? And you can’t relate that you have to give more of the other person than you give. This ruins it completely and totally. We no longer have forgot and understood the beauty of self-giving, a generous, noble self-giving. As a result, the relationship between a husband and wife is closely determined by pleasure.

Now, pleasure is something that we share with animals, but if you are human, now, this is way of formulating it. Maybe you find a better way. Pleasure should be baptized, and I mean by baptism that instead of grabbing it, you receive it as a gift. The moment that you receive as a gift, you know what you do? Thank you.

You know, I’m old, and I need help constantly. The beauty of old age is I say thank you at least ten times a day. And to feel happy over it, thank you, which I’m indebted to you, and I’m grateful and appreciative of your love and kindness. If you spend a day without saying thank you, your day is lost. So, this is so crucial in human relationships, generous giving and not calculating—I give you 40, but I expect you to give me 60. Otherwise you break up.

Number two, the beauty of love, which is essentially fruitful. The moment you see love, you see fruitfulness. What is today is we no longer want this fruitfulness because, as I say once again, as much and as little as possible. Therefore, you take artificial birth control. Now, what it’s doing is to ruin the noble generosity of self-giving. In other words, this general self-giving is eliminated more and more. The child is a burden. It costs money. It’s effort and fatigue and the rest of it, and so you don’t want it. So, we are destroying the family.

Feminism comes in and injects a poison, men and women are identical, which is the greatest nonsense because they are the beautiful word, complementary. In other words, men have qualities, imperfections that can make a woman be more herself and less of herself.

Now, the very moment that men and women instead of being complete become rivals, this is what happens when I go to business—Hillary Clinton would like to become president of the United States and to order and to command. All right, femininity, the great enemy of the devil has been destroyed. The very moment that femininity, that men no longer receive from women what they can expect from them, understanding, feeling to them, generosity, in this very moment, they become effeminate.

And I do not know—if I’m wrong once again, tell me—whether feminism is not responsible for the spreading of homosexuality, and homosexuality is a tragedy, a horrible tragedy because it is a denial of the complementarity between men and women.

What happened in Ireland shows the evil is so widespread, even in countries that traditionally follow the natural law because it’s a question of natural law. It’s not a question of revelation. You see, the question is we are partially blind, all of us, and to long to see, to desire to see, God make me see because, as I mean, as I said, this physical blindness for which I’m not responsible, but all of us without exception have blind spots. We must have the courage of realizing it and to change myself before trying to change the world. All revolutionaries wanted to change the world, but they refused to change themselves.

Glenn: Except for one, Jesus. Except for one, Christ.

Alice: The one. Of course. Of course.

Glenn: A pleasure.

Alice: But I mean, don’t forget, he was God. The most amazing you see—now, look, unless you’re on your knees, you will never accept Him, but once you’re on your knees, obviously you see, and therefore like the man of Jericho, we should say, “Lord, make me see.” And you will. Therefore there is salvation.

I believe the situation to be very, very grave and very serious. I mean, just imagine the president that we have elected, we have elected, the majority, declaring officially that he is in favor of abortion, in other words, declaring himself that he is anti-life, and he goes on and on and on. This is fearful because it spreads all over. I say rebuild the family. Believe in it yourself. You know, one beautiful marriage is a challenge for them.

And then number two, education. Education begins in grammar school. If already in grammar school a child is not taught reverence, reverence for authority, reverence for tradition, reverence for—in this very moment you are just going towards an abyss. Now, I personally believe that some saintly people can still help us, you know, through God’s grace and intervention, but I believe the hour is grave, and if we don’t see it, we’re heading towards an abyss.

Glenn: Yes, we are. The name of the book, My Battle Against Hitler, and Memoirs of a Happy Failure, available everywhere.

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.

It's high time to leave the partisan politics behind and focus on the facts about face masks and whether or not they really work against COVID-19.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck spoke with Drs. Scott Jensen and George Rutherford about the scientific evidence that proves or disproves the effectiveness of mask wearing to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Then, Dr. Karyln Borysenko joined to break down where the massive political divide over masks came from in the first place.

"I think if we were to talk about this a couple months ago, I might have said, 'Well, there's the science of masks, and there's the emotions of masks.' But, unfortunately, there's something in between," Jensen said. "I would have thought that the science of masks would have to do with the physics of masks, so I did a video a couple months ago where I talked about the pore side of a cotton mask or a surgical mask."

He explained that properly worn masks can help reduce the spread of virus particles, but cautioned against a false-sense of security when wearing a mask because they are far from providing complete protection.

"If you have a triple-ply mask, the pore size will end up being effectively five microns. And five microns, to a COVID-19 virus particle, is 50 times larger. That's approximately the same differential between the two-inch separation between the wires of a chain-link fence, and a gnat," Jensen explained.

"But now what we're seeing is if we have some collision of COVID-19 viral particles with the latticework of any mask ... if you're breathing out or breathing in and the viral particles collide with the actual latticework of a mask, I think intuitively, yes, we can reduce the amount of virus particles that are going back and forth."

Dr. Rutherford said masks are essential tools for fighting COVID-19, as long as you wear them correctly. He laid out the three main reasons he believes we should all be wearing masks.

"So, we're trying to do three things," he said. "First of all, we're trying to protect the people around you, in case you are one of the 60% of people who have asymptomatic infection and don't know it. The second thing we're trying to do is to protect you. The third thing we're trying to do is, if you get infected, you'll get infected at a lower dose, and then you're less likely to develop symptoms. That's the threefer."
