Glenn: I would just like to turn down the lights a little bit and get a little eco Barry White, because I want to help you. If you're like me and you're just a little sick of the eco green madness, like the Poland Springs water that just ‑‑ the Poland Springs water bottles will no longer stand up because they're so damn cheap because they're shipping water from Fijo or some places halfway around the world. They're going to put it in a little cheap little bottle. So, once it gets to Fiji ‑‑ once it's been in Fiji and brought over to the airport and then put on a giant 747 and brought over here to the United States and then put into plastic bottles, oh, yeah, and put in a cheap plastic bottle and then they put those cheap plastic bottles into trucks an then drive it to the store and then you get in your SUV and you go and you drive and pick up that Fiji water and you put it into a big plastic or paper bag, which is bad for the environment, no water which way you look at it, then you bring it into the house that's heated to a comfortable 71 degrees and then you come on in and you open up that Fiji water and then, because it's in a cheap bottle, it spills and all that water is wasted. Yeah. All right. So, here's the thing. Here's the thing. Here's what I'd like to do. And this idea comes from Mr. Walt Disney himself. I don't know if you know, Epcot is experimental prototype city of tomorrow and that's what it was supposed to be. He said it was the greatest work of his life. Unfortunately, they turned it into an amusement park, but what it was supposed to be was an experimental prototype city of tomorrow. So, I think we take all these great progressive ideas and what we do is we put people into the prototype city of tomorrow. We take perfectly healthy people, mentally sound, not green freaks, not anti‑green freaks, just perfectly sound, healthy Americans, and we put them into that experimental prototype city of tomorrow, where they have their water bottles that won't stand up anymore, their electricity in their home, their temperature in their home is controlled by someone else. So, if they're cold, well, it's too bad. If it's a really hot day, it's too bad. You have your kids running around. Of course, you can't have any snacks, can't have any chips, can't have any candy. No soda. No, no, but you'd say, let's have the kids go outside and play, they would say, sure, just as long as it's not tag or kick ball or anything where the kids could get hurt, but let's keep them thin. So, have them go outside and stand. Yeah. And when they get really hot, have them drink some of the water. They'll have to lap it up off the floor because the Fiji bottle is no longer made by real plastic and it spilled all over the floor and you don't want that to go to waste. So, the kids will, after a hard day of standing outside, will come on in and lap that Fiji water off the floor. And, of course, no one will have any snack. It will be great. And when you do have dinner, it will be ‑‑ well, it will be something that didn't have fur or eyes, of course. Meat is, of course, a no‑no. We'll all have salad, low salt, lowfat salad, and then we'll all gather together in our living room and we'll watch politically correct television on a very small, environmentally friendly screen. No one will smoke. Most likely soon no one will drink, either. Remember, it was the progressives that brought us prohibition in the first place. Oh, and let's see how happy the Americans are in their experimental prototype city of tomorrow. I would like to see any of these people actually live in that world.

Pat: The kids will have something to do. They can go outside and main line heroin because Mayor Bloomberg is trying to make that easier.

Glenn: Progressive Mayor Bloomberg.

Pat: No salt, no trans fats, and don't you touch a blueberry muffin. But let me help you ‑‑ if you're going to main line heroin, let me show you how to do it safely and I'm going to put out a pamphlet to show you that you need to jump up and down before you stick the needle in your arm so that your veins stick out.

Stu: Is that what I've been doing wrong?

Pat: Yes.

Glenn: Do you know what the last sign of the Miamar Republic was? What did they do right before the damn thing collapsed economically?

Pat: Shot up heroin?

Glenn: Pretty much.

Pat: Yeah.

Glenn: They pushed everything that was bad for you. So, alcohol, drugs, prostitution, everything, keep the masses opiated, keep them ‑‑ keep them as drunk and as drugged as we possibly can get them because that way we'll buy more time. When the central bankers all got together with the government and they said, if we stop printing this money, it means massive bad stuff and they said, well, okay. Well, then maybe something will happen, something will come along and change our fate here and so they drugged ‑‑ they dragged that fate out as long as they could and eventually they had to drug people to be able to keep it going for awhile.

Stu: Yeah. But the results of those policies were just an economic collapse in Hitler coming to power.

Glenn: But other than that, nothing bad happened. Nothing at all bad happened. No salt but heroin for everybody.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
