More millennials are embracing socialism, even communism — here’s what they need to know

At a time when progressive thinkers dominate the academic arena and most schools' curricula are sadly lacking in historical accuracy, more and more millennials (now the largest generation of voters in America) are becoming attracted to the lure — and lore — of socialism. Some are even taking their search for a viable political alternative to the extreme of considering communism.

"Today our kids are being taught that communism is kinda neat, it just has to be run by the right people … It's praised now by college students, professors, celebrities, activists," said Glenn Beck on the show today. "But most of them don't even know what it is."

Documentary director, Edvins Snore, joined Glenn via satellite from Latvia to shed some light on the history of communism in the Soviet Union. (Blaze subscribers will be able to watch Edvins' jaw-dropping documentary, "The Soviet Story" tomorrow, June 14th at 7 p.m. EST. Please be warned, the documentary contains graphic historical content.)

Addressing the fact that most Americans are far more familiar with the atrocities of Hitler than they are with Stalin's ruthless regime, which resulted in up to 60 million deaths, Glenn asked Edvins to explain any similarities between the Nazis and the Soviet Union.

"They are brothers, because they are both socialists. That is a very important thing, that both Nazis and Communists are socialists," answered Edvins. "Both believed that capitalism as a system was finished and they wanted to create new societies — and create new societies by eliminating certain groups within society which they considered to be parasites."

More Millennials are embracing socialism, even communism

At a time when progressive thinkers dominate the academic arena and most schools' curricula are sadly lacking in historical accuracy, more and more Millennials are becoming attracted to the lure -- and lore -- of socialism.

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
