Will getting a driver's license in America soon be a thing of the past?

The dying night club industry, the rise of local currencies and the growing popularity of apps like Tinder, Uber and Lyft reflect the "pivot" taking place as the millennial generation begins to leave its mark on the world.

On radio Tuesday, Glenn explained why he thinks getting a driver's license won't be a big deal in the future and why that might not be such a bad thing.

GLENN: I think we're headed for a time -- we're in for unbelievable change. And not all of it bad. Remember that back I talked to you about called the Fourth Turning that said that time is not linear. I mean, the way things change. You can't look at what's happening today and say, well, this is just going to accelerate and so it will be like this, except ten times worse ten years from now. Because the generations change. And each generation has their own mark. So as this new generation comes in, they're going to change things. And so you can't predict -- they're going to pivot. And so you can't predict what the future is going to be. Because we're not going to be making the decisions for much longer. The guys who are making the decisions now at the top, that hippie generation, they're going to die. They're going to lose their power and they're going to die. And the next generation will pivot in a different way. And you're seeing this now on a couple of things. And I want to talk about them next hour. We'll go in-depth. In England and in New York, they're now starting -- people are now starting -- millennials are printing their own currencies. Their artisan currencies. And they're starting to trade locally on their own currencies. Nobody is doing anything about it.

PAT: Kind of like, by the way, only --

GLENN: Except it's paper currency. And it's local. And it's meant to -- the shops in these towns are saying, well, we're only doing it locally because we want to keep our money here. So you go and you buy local currency, and then they're accepted at all of the local shops.

JEFFY: It's like the old coal miner towns used to do.

GLENN: Right.

JEFFY: The companies used to have their own coal money.

GLENN: Correct. So it's the same thing. But it's the millennials that are doing it. And it's the same idea as what's also happening now in London. They're saying, all of the nightclubs are dying. Nightclubs will be a thing of the past.

PAT: Because it's gone from like over 3,000 to something like 1100.

GLENN: Yeah. Because millennials are not going. Because they have Kindle. They want to go to places --

PAT: Tinder.

GLENN: Not Kindle -- tinder.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They go to places where they can -- where -- they like to take pictures. They want to have an experience. And they don't want to have the same experience every Friday night. So they're looking for something entirely different.

PAT: And they don't need a nightclub to meet people. They can meet people on Tinder.

GLENN: Right. So what I'm trying to say is, we are at a place now where literally -- and now I've said this in the past and meant this in a bad way. This is not necessarily a bad thing on this front. You're not going to recognize our society in ten years. It will be radically different because technology is changing everything. Because the millennials are starting to come in. And it's an entirely new generation that sees the world in a different way.

For instance, you will see in the next ten to 15 years, you will see car companies really start to struggle. Really struggle.

Why? Because ride sharing is going to become a thing of the future. Why own the car when I can just -- it's like bikes in cities. When I can just ride share. When I can just get online and say, hey, who is going to this place and at what time? And it's not for environmental reasons or anything else. It's just not part of the culture. The idea of getting your driver's license at 16 was a big deal for us. In cities all across America now, it's not a big deal.

In fact, I was talking to the guy who started -- not Uber, but what's the competitor of Uber?

STU: Lyft.

GLENN: Talking to the guy who started Lyft. And his daughter at like 20 years old, 19 years old, she said she doesn't even have her driver's license. And she said -- now, this is the guy who started Lyft. And she said, Dad, why do you have a car?

He's like, what do you mean why do I have a car?

She's like, why do you have a car? I mean, not only are you the guy who started Lyft. Why do you have a car? What a waste of money that is.

And he realized, I don't have to market to this generation. They get it. They're there. They just think differently.

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.

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.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil


Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.
