Prepare Now Because 'You Will Not Recognize the World in 2022’

Are you ready to face your life-or-death struggle?

All of us must take on the hero’s role as the world changes and chaos grows, Glenn said on radio Thursday. The world where you worked one job for most of your life is long over, and our society will only keep changing in the next few years.

“You will not recognize the world in 2022,” Glenn predicted, explaining why we need to be prepared now. “This is where the main character in every story faces his life or death struggle,” he said.

You can reduce chaos by revisiting your beliefs and knowing firmly not only what you believe but also why you believe it. The next generation is struggling partly because they weren’t given that secure foundation.

“Our children right now are failing” and leaving traditions because “they believe that we have lied to them,” Glenn asserted. “They go out and they see the bad things that are happening in the world that we didn’t prepare them for.”

GLENN: Let's start with news that actually means something to you. The UN has issued a, quote, early warning over the racial conditions in the United States. Now, this is a really rare move. And it's usually used to signal the potential of a looming civil war or conflict. The report has come from the UN commission specifically mentioning the incident in Charlottesville, stating that, quote, we are alarmed by racist demonstrations with overtly racist slogans, chants, and salutes by white nationalists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan, promoting white supremacy and inciting racial discrimination and-haired. Now, this is according to the head of the committee at the UN. Now, these types of warnings are usually reserved for countries that are gripped by ethnic and religious strife, places like Burundi and Nigeria and Iraq and the Ivory Coast.

That's where we are today, America. The UN is alarmed over the demonstrations by a very tiny refraction of the population here in America, in the country that has the longest-working Constitution in the world, at over 228 years since its ratification. Nobody has even come close. This is the country that the UN feels they need to focus on?

There's a couple of things. First, let me address this: It's time to shudder the United Nations. Close it up. Send it back to Europe. Stop paying for it.

Then we need to return to the values and the principles that made the constitutional -- the Constitution the most powerful document ever created by man: completely reject the idiocy of tiny racist fragments. And that includes the white supremacists and the black supremacists. Anybody -- may I -- dare I say, La Raza, translation the race. Anyone who is basing their politics on race must be dismissed, as well as the politically correct lunacy that is infecting our society. And if your media source is not telling you this today, then perhaps it's time you find a new media source. We begin, right now.

GLENN: I believe -- and I told you this last week. And as I have been looking at my own company, as I've been looking at myself as a dad, as a father, as a guy who is trying to figure things out, and I'm trying to figure out the path to the future and the -- and the path that leads to stability. I've really believe to this place and this understanding that there is no stability in our near future. It's not going to happen.

In fact -- and this has nothing to do with politics -- stability is the last thing that we can expect, at least in the next five to ten years. Because we are at, not a pivot point, we are at the pivot point.

This is the place where the world pivots. I have been talking about this for a long time. And I have been predicting these things -- not predictions. But just looking at the events of the world and where we were headed and technology. And warning that this was going to be a very painful time. And we are at that pivot point right now.

The world is being redesigned, whether you like it or not. And that is the strife that we're feeling. And there are people up at the top of all industry, of all countries, that are trying to use this chaos to their advantage.

And so we have a choice.

Last night, somebody on the staff wrote to me and said, "Glenn, I -- how can I help?"

And I -- I want to -- I want to read part of my response last night because I think -- I think this goes to everybody, in all of our lives.

I urged this person to make notes on their opinions and their beliefs every single day. What is it you believe?

We're at the "question with boldness" part of our lives. And you're going to be dragged into it kicking and screaming, or you're just going to surrender to that concept: Question with boldness everything. And you're going to walk through it.

One, they're both going to be almost impossibly hard, they will feel at the time. But one will lead to success, and the other will lead to slavery and failure. You have to know what it is you truly believe. And why you believe these things. And not because you were taught or, I don't know, I've always believed that. But why are those things true to you?

You must know them firsthand. Because you're going to need to deliver on them every single day. And you're going to need to do it yourself.

The more self-reliant you are -- and this goes in every single business and every single family, every single role on earth. The more self-reliant you are, the better chance of success and survival you will have.

The days of long careers are over. The days of -- of big staffs and secretaries and all of that stuff, those are all over.

By 2022, the world is going to dramatically change. You will not recognize the world in 2022.

Chaos is our immediate future. We are now at the beginning of the middle. And this is where the main character in every story faces his life or death struggle. This is the point where the apex of the struggle is found and the decision that the characters make in that part of that story leads you to the end.

So we're at the beginning now of the middle. We've been writing the -- the opening of this story for the last 20 years. Maybe longer.

But the middle is going to be written quickly. And it's being written every single day.

Chaos right now is happening all around us. And it is the underlying tension that you're feeling. But it can be used to your advantage.

Now, it can be used for good, or it can be used for evil. And right now, we're seeing people use chaos mainly for evil. They are -- especially in politics. Power and the power centers are using chaos to rewrite history and realign the base of their power. That's what's really happening on the streets.

Now, your question that you need to answer, all of us need to answer is: How can I use this chaos, this time to bring a peaceful revolution? How can I use this time to do good instead of evil?

Read Sun Tzu.

Right now, our enemies are using -- using the force of chaos in their favor. We have to use that same force to our advantage. We have to prepare, we have to read, we have to push our mind. We have to think in new and different ways.

You have almost an impossible task. You have to remain young at heart and yet firm in resolve. Your heart needs to be soft, and your resolve needs to be hard. Really difficult.

But I believe, for me at least, the only way you can do this is to take everything you know and throw it away. Learn it from the ground level, as if you were a space alien and you were coming in for the very first time.

I'm going to show you in a minute how to do this.

What -- what have you been challenged on recently, that you -- you challenged yourself, you went and said, "I don't know if this is really true. I've just always been taught this?"

When I told you about the Confederate constitution not being about state's rights by any stretch of the imagination -- and I said, "Don't take my word for it, go read it yourself."

Did you? Did you read it? Have you ever read it? Because you need to know that and not know that because some dope on the radio told you. You need to know it.

Our children right now are failing. They're failing, and they're leaving their traditions because they believe that we have lied to them. Because they see that this isn't working. And then they go out and they see the bad things that are happening in the world that we didn't prepare them for.

We sheltered them from all of the bad things, and then we didn't know the bad things ourself. We were -- we will talk about a glorious flag. But we will not teach them about the horrors that this country was involved in.

You can't have the glories of America without its failings. And when they go out and they hear somebody talking about things that they can go out and quickly research and verify, that, yeah, that did happen -- and mom and dad or the teachers or the media source or -- or whomever didn't tell them that, didn't prepare -- all of a sudden, they think we're liars.

In three months, in as little as three months, by Christmastime -- and I don't think this is true. And I'm always wrong on timing. And I hope I'm wrong on this. I don't believe this is true. But I do believe this is a possibility, that by Christmastime, we could be fighting a civil war or a global war or perhaps both of them.

Please, please, I beg you to take that warning to heart. I pray that I am wrong. But it is coming. I don't know when. But it is coming.

A giant reset of the entire world is coming. And it's going to come, and it's going to come crashing down on our heads, unless giants to begin to rise. Now, what is a giant?

When we first got into the Iraqi War, I said, "Look for the man who will be on the postage stamp. Look for the Iraqi that will be on the postage stamp." Well, there was never one that rose up. There was never that self-sacrificing guy who galvanized behind the idea of freedom. And that's why Iraq is a failed state.

But what is a hero? A hero is -- a hero is somebody that just doesn't forget what's right and true. That's it. That's it.

They just know what's right and true, and they refuse to sit down. That is the only difference between us and heroes. But you're not going to be able to sit down when you are surrounded by voices telling you that you are wrong and presenting evidence that maybe perhaps you've never even thought of.

You can be a warrior, and you can stand with the people who will fight on the streets, but those people who will fight on the streets most likely are the same guys who are going to talk about white supremacy and how bad the Jews are or black supremacy. And strangely, how bad the Jews are.

What's your message going to be? What -- how do you build the framework of hope?

Because once hope is lost, the cause is lost. The battle is lost. The war is lost.
