Watch: Delicious Pizza Still Can’t Make Socialism Work

A Boston pizza shop with socialist stylings has closed after not making enough money.

Dudley Dough opened two years ago, calling itself “pizza with a purpose” and aiming to pay employees a “fair wage” while trying to “put a social enterprise model into action.” The pizza shop was a project from Haley House, a nonprofit in Boston that provides food and housing assistance. Unfortunately for Dudley Dough, the nonprofit could not afford to keep subsiding the restaurant.

“Two years after the opening, we now know the results,” Glenn said. “It always ends exactly the same.”

Get the full story on Dudley Dough and the “fair wage” concept with our explainer.

GLENN: “Pizza with a purpose.”

That’s the motto of Boston area restaurant “Dudley Dough.”

They serve the usual fare. Pizza, coffee, and…economic justice.

Dudley Dough was opened in 2015 by the nonprofit organization Haley House to test out their ideas of economic justice and fair wages.

But sadly, just two years after opening, Dudley Dough is closing their doors. By all accounts, the pizza was delicious and fresh. It was their social justice inspired business model that was rotten.

The pizza joint started out with money (a $100,000 donation from the owner of the New England Patriots) but since they weren’t intent on really making any dough on their own, the business failed.

Look, Dudley Dough had some really nice ideas. They made sure they paid their employees more than minimum wage and donated pizza for daily tutoring sessions. That’s nice!

But what would really be nice, for the employees and clients, is if they were still open. Making money is not evil. It’s a fact that capitalist minded people and the businesses they start are better able to share their money and success with exponentially more people.

If Dudley Dough struck a good balance between taking care of their community and taking care of finances, they might still be in business.

Let’s all learn a lesson from Dudley Dough. Social justice is worse than anchovies on pizza.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Do you have the GUTS to fight for freedom?

If Republicans lose their majority in the U.S. Senate after the Georgia runoff election, we may be facing dark times. So here's what you need to do: it's time mentally to prepare to stand up for freedom, which will likely take a LOT of courage from ALL of us. But, Glenn says, 'I'm not sitting down.' And, it only takes 15-20 percent of us to change the world. Use this Thanksgiving Day to discuss with your families the grim times we potentially may face, and how together you can best articulate to others WHY America's core principles are so important to preserve. So, who's in? Do YOU have the guts to fight for freedom?

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…
