From the Chalkboard: What Is Socialism and Why Does It Matter to You?

Nowadays we’ve all heard the arguments both for and against Socialism. Some say that those who oppose Socialism are elitist who don’t care about the poor. Other’s believe that Socialism and Communism are essentially the same thing — and neither one good. And there are even a few who think that Socialism is an app or some kind of social media platform.

“In today’s world, we’re deciding something really really important, without even knowing what the terms mean, and one of those terms is Socialism,” Glenn said to introduce the topic of today’s show. “It’s going to be decided by us, whether we understand it or not, right now.”

The concept of Socialism — to take power away from the individual and give it to the collective — would in theory lead to a completely equal society. But as Glenn explained, the real result is a government with complete control over the people.

“[Socialism] advocates the promise of everything from prosperity to equality. But in the end, time and time again throughout history, it delivers tyranny. And the only thing equal about people is that they are all equally miserable,” said Glenn.

In this short excerpt from today’s show, Glenn takes to the chalkboard to explore some of the US history’s ‘experiments’ with Socialism, and to explain why he calls Socialism, “the greatest lie of the last two centuries.”

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?

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…
