GLENN: There's a story about how Michael Bloomberg is paying kids to get good grades in school, and it's working. I'm sorry. I don't care if it's working. I mean, are we really to the point to where we'll pay kids not just to   we're giving them a free education. We're going to pay them if they get certain grades. What is the next   I've been trying to noodle this this morning. What's the next step from that? Everybody will just   because that's the problem with I think our society is we just concentrate on the first step: Well, okay, we're going to do that. Well, what does that lead to? What's the next thing? Can anybody be a stunt brain for me on that, call me up? 888 727 BECK. Because I know   and it ain't gonna be good.

For instance, if you do community service, you get, you know, better chance of getting admissions into college. Well, what is the next step on that? People aren't doing community service unless they get something out of it. Barack Obama now wants to do this national service program. It's a nightmare. You should serve because   again, again the progressive idea never perfects man. It forces man to do something. Community service should be because you want to serve your community, not because you get paid for it, not because, you know, you get a good grade for it, not because you get into college, not because you get a scholarship, not because you get college money. You should do it because it's the right thing to do.

Stu?

STU: Isn't this, though, just   I mean, isn't it essentially the same thing as an allowance for chores? I mean, you should be doing chores anyway, helping around the house. But you give an allowance. I mean, it teaches   it's essentially using the principles of capitalism to get things done. I'm generally in favor of that.

GLENN: Okay, here's the difference. With chores you're earning your keep. With chores you just don't live in the house for free. Everybody works together. You help put the groceries away, you take out the garbage. We're a team. We're working together.

STU: Right. You are earning your keep. You are getting something for free that you should be working for anyway. Why give an allowance?

GLENN: Right. But you are not giving this for free. You are not getting an education for free. We're already paying for it. So we're already giving you something.

STU: So in essence they are giving a little bit of money back. What's the problem? A performance based incentive. I don't know what your issue with that is.

GLENN: You're serious?

STU: Mildly. But I mean, I could   I am a little torn on something like that because in a way   and again, I don't know how these people can figure out that capitalism works in this scenario and it doesn't work in any of the other ones. This is the only time they can ever figure it out. But in essence you are rewarding good performance. I don't necessarily have a problem with that. Although it's   

GLENN: It's not your job. It's your honor, it's your privilege.

STU: Right.

GLENN: It is accept the gift. And if you don't want the gift, then don't take the gift. But I'm not going to bail you out for the rest of your life, either. See, this is the problem. People don't apply themselves because they don't have to.

STU: But here if they do apply themselves, they get rewarded. That's a principle that is taught   

GLENN: They get rewarded in life. You get rewarded in life. You get a good education, there are rewards that come with a good education. It's free.

STU: But you are saying one reward is free and the other isn't.

GLENN: No. The reason why nobody takes their education seriously is because you don't have to pay for it, you don't have to work for nothing. It means nothing, you get it for free, you gotta do it. It's the same with public housing versus private housing. If you give somebody a stake, if they've had to work for their house and they have a stake in that house, chances are they take much better care of it. But if it's just a free house, they don't care.

STU: Right. But if you are talking about results, I mean, again no one would ever propose this. But if you are talking about results and you paid the people living in public housing to take care of it, you can be sure that they probably would.

GLENN: This is me being a Hertz rental car company, okay? This is me saying, "Oh, you want to rent a car? Okay. Why don't you rent the car and, by the way, you are coming into Chicago and I just love you being in Chicago. So I'm going to give you the car for free. And I'm going to pay you for not hitting other cars." Return the car and take care of the car. But if I gave you the car for free, you wouldn't.

STU: But in essence when you are renting a car like that, there is part of the price that's built in that they are taking extra money for people who don't do that. So   

GLENN: Yeah, but this is a free one. They are not paying for this.

STU: They are not paying for   

GLENN: This is free education.

STU: They are paying for it in taxes, in theory.

GLENN: Uh huh.

STU: If they weren't billions of dollars in debt, that argument would make sense.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But you know what I'm saying. In theory the system is paid for by   this is what they argue with healthcare, too. In theory we could pay people to go and take these tests every once in a while so we can make sure they are actually healthy and not just overlooking easily cured things.

GLENN: I don't buy that for a hundred different reasons. It makes me angry that we're giving somebody for free   it's like, hey, come to my ice cream store; I'm going to give you free ice cream. Oh, and if you don't trash my place, I'll pay you for it.

STU: But is there a possibility that this actually   let's just take that we live in a world that's insane. We've got that on the table. But isn't there a possibility that you actually are teaching a kid a capitalist principle?

GLENN: Yeah. I was going to say the only explanation that I   the only theory that I'll entertain is that it is teaching capitalism.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: But at the same time I guarantee the tests include things that are anticapitalist.

STU: If you understand socialism really well, you'll get a capitalism benefit.

GLENN: It's just ridiculous.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.
