Our Children Will Right This Ship. What Should We Teach Them?

The Kondratiev Wave was an economic cycle developed by Soviet economist Nikolai Kondratiev. Kondratiev identified three phases in the cycle: expansion, stagnation and recession. Modern interpretations divide the wave into four periods, with a turning point or collapse between the first and second phases.

"We know that to be true from history . . . to the furthest back in monetary history, and you can see the Kondratiev Wave, and it stays consistent. The Kondratiev Wave is where you get green shoots. There's the four seasons of the economy. There's spring, summer, fall and winter," Glenn explained.

The economic cycles can also be tied to generational traits that develop from economic and societal conditions.

"People who were born in 1901 to 1924, they're the hero generation, and that's the generation that was coming of age in the Depression and fought World War II. The greatest American generation," Glenn said.

According to the Kondratiev Wave, these are the generations since the turn of the last century:

Born 1901 to 1924: Hero Generation

Born 1924 to 1942: Artist Generation

Born 1943 to 1960: Prophet Generation

Born 1961 to 1981: Nomad Generation

The nomad generation gave birth to what will be the next hero generation, born from 1982 to 2003.

"They come of age when winter is here because those are the ones that take us through winter and then plant the new seeds for spring," Glenn said.

Their success, though, will depend upon what we teach them. And it has nothing to do with politics, but how we train them to be the next generation of great Americans, with character, principles and values.

"If I knew I was going to send my kid to fight the Nazis, to fight communism, to fight in the Great Depression, to hold everything together, to be optimistic through all of that, and to be the one that you put all of the chips on, what would I teach my child?" Glenn asked.

Glenn made a list of essentials to equip our children for the coming storm:

• Integrity

• History

• Courage

• Righteousness

• Right vs. Wrong

• Trust in God

Beyond that, teach them about Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln and other men of peace.

"They have to be taught how to make peace and when it's right to make peace. Lincoln, after the Civil War, he didn't say, 'Get 'em.' He said, 'With malice toward none and charity toward all, let's heal this land.'" Glenn said.

Then Glenn mentioned one last thing he would teach his kids: how to listen and compromise.

"I think it's going to take a very hard, long battle with our kids," he said. "And if it doesn't teach one of those things, you should run from it. Because that's the only way they'll hold on to it."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
