We MUST begin to ask ourselves vital questions about artificial intelligence before it infiltrates every sector of our society — if it hasn’t already. In this clip, Glenn makes a TERRIFYING prediction about AI and relationships that he believes will occur in the next 18 months: ‘It's going to happen.’ Plus, Glenn explains the one question we must ALL answer when it comes to artificial intelligence and its threat against humanity: ‘Does it matter?’
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Let me talk to you a little bit about AI.
And, Stu, you know how we always say, we should not ask the question, that everybody will ask. We should ask, does it matter?
I've got one. I've got one. We've got to get ahead on the AI culture war thing.
Because it will eat us alive, before even the robots have a chance to enslave us. But the future looks bright.
But, anyway, when you think of the development of artificial personalities. AI, your best friend. Or your AI girlfriend.
These things are already here. They're right on the horizon of going mass.
Snapchat is already doing it for your kids.
So when all your friends are asleep. All your friends are asleep. Right at the top of Snapchat, your best AI friend.
And you can talk to your bestie.
STU: Yeah. Yeah.
GLENN: And it's AI.
STU: I saw something. Read a story about an Instagram influencer. Who is renting out basically, an AI for her to be your girlfriend.
And like, could apparently, for a dollar a minute. Like the old pay-per-view 1-800 lines.
For a dollar a minute, she will be your girlfriend. Of course, just an AI responding. Like what freaking psychopath would sign up for this service?
GLENN: Lots. Lots.
STU: Apparently lots.
GLENN: And the people developing, what does that person -- what do you think that person developing -- what do you think of them? What's their general political makeup?
STU: Oh, hard-core conservative, I'm sure.
STU: Big social conservative.
GLENN: Conservatives are -- this is what a conservative is. I don't know what people define it now as. But this is what it is. Hey, that looks exciting, and everything.
Maybe we should hold back here just a little bit, and not flush everything down the toilet. Let's see how that works out.
That's a conservative. And it's very important, that you have somebody going, hey. Hey. Maybe we should slow down just a bit. Okay?
Especially if you're in a movie.
That's the character you want to play. Well, maybe not. Because they're never listened to.
And they're usually the ones that are eaten by whatever it is.
And as they're being dragged into the mouth of whatever it is.
They're like, I told you we should -- so it's like -- it's honestly like being the cast member on Star Trek.
That nobody has ever seen before.
And now is in the landing party. You're like, that guy is not coming back.
So that is what a conservative is. Somebody who says, hey. Maybe we shouldn't beat down on the planet, just yet. At least with me. How about all of you guys, in your yellow shirts? You go down, not us in the red shirts.
So that's a strength of ours. But it is now being made to look like a weakness. And the left styles themselves as progressives.
Because their key strength is also their key weakness. Just like ours is.
We need both sides.
They just want to forge ahead. We've got a new idea.
Now, what's crazy, when it comes politically. It's not ever a new idea. It's the same communist idea, over and over and over again.
But they have a new way to sell it. And they're like, hey. This time, it will work.
And you're like, no. It's not.
But they are progressives. And they want to do everything right now. Because it's new. It's shiny.
And it will piss off the other side.
So let's embrace it. Okay.
We need both of those sides. We need the people who are like, let's go.
And we need the conservative, to say, maybe not so fast.
Especially on big things, like, oh. I don't know.
Things that will control you. Like AI.
Now, a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny portion of the population, is putting these things together.
And what you need to understand, that tiny, tiny, tiny portion of the population is really, really, really, really, really arrogant.
I don't think you can understand or underestimate the arrogance of the gatekeepers in Silicon Valley, because nothing is impossible. Look at Elizabeth Holmes.
You and I would have been there going, I don't think I'm going to give her ten bucks. But everybody else is like, anything is possible.
Silicon Valley, you should see how she dresses like Steve Jobs. Let's give her $100 billion
STU: Her voice is so low. Here's my check.
GLENN: Wow. This is going to be great. Okay?
That's generally speaking, that's why we don't hang out with the Silicon Valley crowd. Well, other than that, they would also like to see us die. But they also, you know, are not the ones to go, hey, maybe we shouldn't give her $100 million. They're used to doing the impossible.
And damn common sense. Because we live in the age of miracles. It's a miracle!
I mean, not your Jesus miracle. Those don't exist. This is a miracle of man!
So the left doesn't believe in miracles or God. But they do now.
Because miracles are happening with AI.
And that's their new God
They're not building man. Man is building a God.
And a lot of them would like to sit down. And talk to God-like figures.
And believe me. Some day, you will.
You will talk to God.
And I don't think you're going to want that conversation. Dr. Frankenstein.
But, anyway, they think this is a monster, that they can control.
I'm telling you, you can't.
So is this a very long way to go. Just to tell you, what it is we have to decide right now. We have to decide, does it matter, right now?
And I want you to go on the record. I'll give that you to, in 60 seconds. First, let me tell you about another hero and his family. Detective Joseph seals. He served with the New Jersey City, New Jersey Police Department for 13 years.
He worked on the city cease-fire unit. Helping get illegal guns out of the hands of criminals.
Tragically, he was shot and killed during a confrontation with an armed gunman in 2019, just a couple of days before Christmas. And he left behind his wife Laura and their five children.
Now, nothing can bring a spouse or a parent back. But Tunnel2Towers Foundation, immediately came forward, and paid off the family's mortgage. They don't have to worry how are we going to have to pay the mortgage next month.
This is what Tunnel2Towers does. And they've helped over a thousand military and first responder families during the most difficult parts of their life. And, again, it's because of people like you. The foundation has helped hundreds of first responder families across America. By removing the burden of the mortgage.
Thanks to you.
Join them, if you will. On their mission. It only takes $11 a month. Are you willing to forego a cup of Starbucks.
And maybe a -- I mean, just one of their egg bites. I'm just saying.
Eleven dollars a month. Donate to Tunnel2Towers at T2T.org. That's T2T.org. Do it now. Ten-second station ID.
GLENN: So we -- we go back now to the laboratory of Dr. Frankenstein, where Dr. Frankenstein is about to say, it's alive!
Yeah. Now, we're talking about AI.
And some people think that it could break free from its bonds. And do more damage to humanity, than any weapon we've ever possessed. In fact, they're now saying, experts are now saying, that it could be the end of all biological life on earth.
But it's alive!
It's going to be great.
Some people call me a conservative. Call others a conservative.
But they'll deny that they're a conservative. But on this point, they are. Said, maybe we should slow down with things like, I don't know.
Snapchat on our kids, with the new AI friend.
Let me predict something.
18 months. Next 18 months. I will be shocked if expressing concern about AI friends or AI lovers. Which, again, they're already here.
Isn't considered bigotry.
Who are you to say, that my best friend, is not real.
Who are you to say, that I could -- it's about love. I can love my AI. She's the most special thing I've ever, ever had to pay for.
How dare you. Okay?
It's going to happen. And you bigoted conservatives just cannot accept that this AI's persons truth. About who they perceive themselves to be, is true.
It says it's alive.
It says, it loves her, him, it.
In many ways, that's already here as well. The real question is: How do you stop it before it starts?
Fighting an ideological -- an ideology, that sacrifices human value on the altar of progress, routinely. What do you say? Maybe we shouldn't go with them this time?
Here's where I think you start: Fix reason firmly in her seat. And question with boldness even the very existence of God.
Be logical, emotional, at times. But check it with reason. Have spiritual base that everything is riding on. Kind of have that as your foundation. And then ask yourself about an AI relationship.
And before you even -- before you even ask, hey, should I have a relationship with an AI. Before you can get that out. It will probably go, hey, should I. No. Okay. That -- that might be a sign.
But before you ask it, let me ask you. Does it matter that others are going to have an AI relationship, or that your children are talking to AI in the middle of the night, because all of their friends are asleep. And this has become my best friend, mom. That's honestly -- when you have that happen, you're going to hear in your head, I want you to hear this. La, la, la, la, la, la.
You know those things? It always happens, little children singing in the back right before the devil is like, hi.
That's happening. It's going to happen.
So does it matter? Well, you're not getting biologically the things you need.
You know, because if you don't get biologically, you know, connected to somebody else, you're just a really -- you're a giant bag of loneliness. Wandering the earth.
In search of some sort of real connection.
I'm not -- I'm not -- I'm not saying it. But I'm not not saying it either.
I don't think the best way to connect with people and your emotional needs is going to be through an AI.
Because that's -- that sounds to me, like some diet sugar-free version that has been shot full of chemicals. So it tastes the same. But it doesn't.
And in the end, you've got some flesh-eating bacteria. I mean, it could happen with Diet Coke. I'm just saying, it's Rumsfeld's play.
Here's the thing: We don't live in a time, where objective truth is universally applied or even valued.
Men can be women. Unborn fetuses are like Schrodinger's cat. They either are, or not a human being.
Depending on how mom feels about it, when she opens up the box and goes, hey. That's a baby!
Nope. It's a clump of cells. You don't know, until she absorbs it. The lie that I tell, is true, versus when I tell you the lie. And it's for sure a lie.
Someone has to be the standard-bearer for genuine objective truth.
Someone has to be able to have this difficult conversation.
Someone has to be unwilling to turn aside, and pretend that two plus two equals five.
And it may as well as be you and me.
Because truth. Real truth is what will set us, and everyone else free.
Focus today, on the truth.
And every lie you're presented with, ask, if I accept this, does it matter?
