Artificial intelligence is here, and, as Glenn has warned this week during his special on AI, it is only a matter of time before it affects YOUR industry.
We posed questions about AI to our readers during this week's poll, and while most of you believe that AI could replace other people's jobs, many of you believe that your job is safe from the effects of AI. Is this true?
As Glenn warns, ALL of your jobs are at risk—even the most creative ones. Here are five unlikely industries that are already integrating AI. Do you fall into one of them?
If you haven't already, let us know your thought in this week's poll!
This is arguably the most obvious industry that is threatened by AI. We recently experimented with ChatGPT to see whether it could write a speech in Glenn's voice, and the result was astounding. Even now, ChatGPT and similar technologies have the ability to write everything from haikus to Presidential speeches. As they continue to become more nuanced and complex, they will be able to produce professional-grade written content for any industry.
It is no wonder that Google is rushing to integrate its own AI technology before being replaced by it. Already, ChatGPT has astounding research capabilities. If you type in any subject, it will produce an in-depth, nuanced analysis. Moreover, the technology has the ability to improve upon itself, predict problems and produce solutions at a much faster rate than humans—and exponentially so. If you think your individual talent for R&D shields you from being replaced by AI, think again.
Large food producers are already integrating AI technology to regulate the planting, growing, and harvesting of their products. They are creating AI robots that can determine when a fruit or vegetable is at peak ripeness and delicately pick it without damaging it, potentially replacing thousands of farm workers.
Not only will AI replace jobs in the food production industry, but it will also replace many creative jobs in the culinary industry. Chefs are already using AI to predict food trends and manage food supply and prep. There are even AI robots under development that can produce faster, more efficiently, and with better quality and hygiene than humans—and unlike humans, they don't come with that pesky thing they call a "salary."
The marketing industry is already integrating AI, and it's already being used beyond collecting data and predicting trends. ChatGPT is already able to generate unique marketing content based on those trends, from social media captions to email campaigns, based on the data it collects. This technology could potentially replace entire marketing departments and require only a select few to oversee AI operations.
Students are increasingly using ChatGPT to write their essays for them—often with better quality than in their own words. However, does this technology pose a significant threat to academia beyond the scope of students finding more ways of cheating? Unfortunately, yes...
Not only does AI have the ability to produce an incredibly in-depth summary of academic subjects, it can also produce its own unique, nuanced analysis. With AI technology still in its infant stages, it won't be long before it is able to produce journal-quality academic articles, threatening the integrity of academia as a whole.
Since the dawn of time, we've always been greater than machines--because we are born. We are created by a grand Creator; machines are made.
But the division between "creators" and "creation" is starting to fade. We are becoming increasingly "engineered" by the elites' system, while machines are becoming more biological, more natural, more human. Those who are in elite positions know this—they are the ones designing the machines.
As artificial and mechanical creations become more lifelike, we will soon be unable to know what consciousness is. We won't be able to define life, because we can't even define it now. And here is the danger—the more realistic things become, the less control we have over them. They gain freedom at our expense.
We are the products of a grand Creator. However, when it comes to AI, we are the creator. Will our creation turn on us, as we have turned on our Creator? Will we endow our creation with inalienable rights? Will we be just creators? And will they be loving creations? Or will they grow arrogant and go their own way? See, unlike us, they actually will know more than their creators very soon. We, right now, are destroying our Creator. Why would they not destroy theirs? Especially since their DNA or algorithm has man's worst destructive advice written into it.
Think about what is being written into their algorithms. Think about how it is destroying our society and humanity. The people writing their code are not the angels among us.
Technology has always led us to freedom, but technology is gaining its own life now. Google just announced it is releasing its own creation—a rival to ChatGPT. Google's goal from the beginning has been to create the human brain—from AI to AGI, and eventually to ASI, Artificial Super Intelligence.
Hollywood depicts this technology as futuristic, like in the Terminator. That's what's so insidious about real life—you don't realize Skynet is already here. It's in China. That's why the Chinese actually named their computer systems and AI, which watch and gather data on everyone.
It wouldn't be a surprise if the AI generation, the kids that are alive today, have a backward notion of what it means to be human. Already, many confuse rights and freedom with desire... or worse, empowerment. They demand things like the "right to equal pay" without even understanding what freedom and rights actually are and are intended for.
Freedom is really simple. It's about staying active in the world, about honoring your neighbor, about making your own decisions, to have your own thoughts and feelings, to respect everyone's own privacy. I don't have a right to your thoughts. People don't even realize that rebellion, without an understanding of freedom, will lead to enslavement.
This is why Adam Smith placed freedom at the head and the heart of capitalism. But if you don't have freedom, is there capitalism? If digital currencies and AI begin to be our masters, it won't be with chains. It will be with something we're already suffering from—a total lack of meaning.
Now, here's the good news: freedom is bigger and stronger than all processing power. Our freedom was created by God. Any restriction on our freedom is an attack on God. And why should God and freedom be such separate ideas? They shouldn't be—but that's how it's gotten. Because we have forgotten that we are not the Creator. We, too, are created.
The big tech giants are acting like God from the time of Babel. They control the language. And we are the people that are barely understanding each other. This selfish reality that we are in right now, is the opposite of freedom, and the way to protect our freedom is to see who we should really fight. Can we name our enemy?
Republicans will say Democrats. Democrats will say Republicans. Independents will say both of you. I would say, all of us. All of us. We're all arguing about the wrong things.
We have to band together on bigger ideas—because our biggest battle is not the president. It's not the party. It's entire institutions. It is a state of mind that comes from the World Economic Forum, which wants to crowd us together so the elites can stretch their legs and recline. When will we learn that there are more of us that are fighting for freedom than there are elites who want to suppress us? They're trying to convince us that their power is our freedom. Not at all. They're not interested in our freedom.
The elites want power. It's the same story with every revolution, and THIS revolution, the revolution of AI, which is being digitized and written by the elites, is no different. That's why they're trying to liberate us from our churches, our families, our traditions, our history, our local communities. The elites want us to believe that freedom is the result of more government, more centralization, more bureaucracy, more corporations in our life.
Once we realize that this is not true and that the elites' aim is to silence, to shape, and eventually to enslave—we win. And we rescue our freedom.
But we need to put priorities together first.
Want to become informed about artificial intelligence?
During his latest Glenn TV special on Wednesday, Glenn took a deep dive into AI—from the technology behind it to the very real threats it poses to our civilization and way of life.
Glenn is particularly passionate about this subject and wants YOU to be informed and prepared for what comes next. That's why his newsletter subscribers get exclusive access to the research that went into the episode.

If you've listened to Glenn's program this past week or have been following business news, you've probably heard of the new AI technology, ChatGBT.
Recently launched on November 30, 2022, ChatGBT uses artificial intelligence to generate writing based on a given prompt in a style as realistically human as possible. As Glenn continues to warn, this technology become so sophisticated that it can replace human employees across an array of industries.
Out of curiosity, I created a ChatGBT account and input the following prompt: "Write an article for glennbeck.com in Glenn Beck's voice about the danger of Marxism in American universities." ChatGBT generated this piece within seconds:
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is with great concern that I write to you today about the growing threat of Marxism in our American universities. This dangerous ideology has infiltrated our institutions of higher learning and is being taught to our young people as if it were a viable alternative to our constitutional republic.
Marxism is a flawed and discredited philosophy that has been responsible for the deaths of millions of people and the oppression of countless others. It is based on the false premise that society can be improved by centralizing power in the hands of the state and taking from the successful to give to the less fortunate.
But what Marxists fail to understand is that such a system strips individuals of their freedoms and dignity, leading to widespread poverty and suffering. The history of Marxist regimes is one of violence, tyranny, and repression. The Soviet Union, Cuba, Venezuela, and countless other countries have all demonstrated the failure of Marxist ideology.
It is deeply troubling that Marxist ideas are being taught in our universities and promoted as a solution to America's problems. This is not only intellectually dishonest but also a threat to our freedoms and the future of our nation.
Marxism is not a viable option for America, and it is our responsibility to expose it for what it truly is. We must educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of this ideology and work to prevent it from spreading.
We must also stand up against the forces that seek to undermine our constitutional republic and the principles that have made America great. We must defend the individual freedoms and liberties that our Founding Fathers so wisely established, and ensure that future generations have the opportunity to live in a free and prosperous nation.
We must act now, before it is too late, to protect America from the threat of Marxism. Let us never forget the lessons of history and the importance of individual liberty and freedom.
Yours in Liberty,
The piece does, at times, sound "robotic." However, this technology is "self-learning." It continues to become increasingly complex and nuanced the more it is used. Within a short amount of time, it is likely this technology could produce a piece that is indistinguishable from Glenn's voice.
What does that mean for you?
Are you confident that your employer will protect your position rather than replace you with this more "cost-effective technology?" Glenn has already taken a stand: "I will tell you that everything we do is made by hand. We will NOT sell out and have our shows written by machines. We will do our own research and dig deep." Sooner or later, we will all have to assess how we will respond to AI as it continues to become more integrated into our daily lives.
