It's Time to Take a Hard Look at the Ethics of AI

When humans try to cure a problem, upgrades are made and limits are pushed - sometimes to the point of abuse. Tuesday on radio, Glenn took the beginnings of a deep dive into technology and the dangers of Elon Musk's new business which merges man with machine. Transhumanism is coming and now is the time to decide if it should be stopped before it's too late.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: Okay. I'm trying to get us to -- we need to talk about AI. We need to talk about future technology and how it's going to integrate with our society. This is more important than anything else because this will affect your life in about five years and will definitely affect our children's life. And there are really smart people -- Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates -- a long list of them, that are all saying, "This has got to be stopped." This is not some Luddite stop technology. This is really smart people saying, "This is the end of humans." Now, some really smart people on the other side are saying, "No, this is the greatest thing ever." But we don't just slide into something where the greatest minds on earth are saying, "Hey, warning, this could wipe out the entire human race." I say we don't take that casually and just slide into that technology, like we have everything else.

So I want to show you one more piece of technology. And I'll probably have to do it at the -- after the break, here at the bottom. But one more thing that will show you how we're sliding into things. And you're just not going to be able to get out. Because humans always try to cure a problem, then once they've found that cure, they want to upgrade that, and then they push and abuse that.

Everybody knows that right now -- we yesterday had a conversation about abortion. And if that's life inside of a human body. And then how much is that life worth? That was the MSNBC discussion: Yeah, but that kid, you know, could cost $10,000 a year to raise.

So what is life? And what is the value of life?

Those are two questions that Americans and the world don't want to answer because we're too busy talking about politics and who is going to be on the Supreme Court to rule pro or -- or anti-choice. Instead, we should be having the conversation of, what is life?

And you can tell that man cares about life more than anything else because anything that you read about Silicon Valley, they're all searching for one thing. And for the first time in human history, we're about to cross into it. And it is the fountain of youth. Right now, the biggest thinkers on earth are trying to cure death. As amazing and as ridiculous as that sounds, they're really trying to do it.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
