'Socialism is immoral' - Here's what happens to companies when government becomes God

On radio Monday, Glenn disclosed what he thinks is at the root of the surge in popularity of Bernie Sanders, and it has to do with morals.

According to Bernie Sanders, capitalism the way we're doing it is immoral, period.

"I agree with him," Glenn said, before pointing out the socialist solution presents problems of its own.

"The solution is more compliance officers, more rules, more regulations, more fines," Glenn said.

Under a socialist system, Glenn explained, companies are beholden to the government to set up the rules and dictate what is moral and what is immoral.

"The government has made your morals for you. The government has become your god," Glenn said.

STU: I was listening to a radio show, I think it was last week. And they went to commercial break twice. Five of the commercials in the two commercial breaks were companies offering to get you in compliance with Obamacare. Their business was, they go to companies, they say, "We promise you won't break the law if you come to us and pay us to help you avoid breaking the law with Obamacare because it's so complicated." And I wonder if that's part of what you were talking about last segment, in that, are companies less moral and don't care about the customer, or are they so focused on trying to deal with every new regulation and every new thing that's changing and passing all the time -

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Both. I think both. I think both.

STU: - that they can't focus.

GLENN: I think what happens is, they get so focus on trying to meet the regulations, that that becomes their focus.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Instead of saying, we have our own set of ideals, we have our own set of morals here that are higher than that, that becomes such an important part of their business, that that is their standard. Can you pass the government - the government has made your morals for you. The government has become your god. What do the Ten Commandments say? Compliance officer, what do they say? That's your god. That's truly what is happening.

STU: And it's - at times, hard to blame companies who are threatened with the force of jail time to comply with these things or massive fines, how - how can they focus on what the ideal of their company actually is?

GLENN: Right.

STU: You're just trying to deal with some new restriction or some new payroll requirement or some new way to deal with interns or a new tax proposal. Whatever it is. There's always something changing. And you can't focus on actually doing your job.

GLENN: That's why socialism - listen to me, capitalism, the way we're doing it is immoral, period. That's Bernie Sanders. I agree with him. Capitalism, the way we're doing it is immoral. Look at the solution. The solution is more compliance officers. More rules. More regulations. More fines.

I can't - I can barely hold on to the insurance that I have for all the people in my company, and I want them to have the best insurance that I can afford. Not that they can afford. That I can afford. Okay?

I want them to have that. But the government, through its - all of it's rules and regulations and everything else is making that damn near impossible. Socialism is immoral. So what's the solution? Find the morality in capitalism. Find the morality in the individual. Because the individual, he has the power to create anything if he is a moral, decent person. If you're running a moral, decent company, you will rock the world. It's not more compliance or more rules and regulations. Now, let me show you a really dark part of the world and what's happening in a good way, next.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
