'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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
