We’re already living in the fourth industrial revolution, Glenn Beck says, and it’s high time we wake up to what that entails.
If we amassed all the technological developments that occurred between the years of 1760 and 2020 (three industrial revolutions), it would be shocking to see just how much the world has changed in the last 260 years.
To give some perspective, imagine tabulating every single technological advancement that’s transpired between the 1764 invention of the spinning Jenny, a machine that spins wool and cotton, to the development of the 2020 embodied Moxie, an interactive robot that utilizes artificial intelligence to bolster social and emotional skills among 5 to 10-year-olds.
It’s astonishing to even consider such a list.
But here’s something far more astonishing: “That much of a technological revolution is going to happen between 2020 and 2035,” Glenn says.
Granted that we already live in a world with artificial intelligence and quantum computers, it’s unsettling to even speculate what the world would look like with an additional 260 years worth of technological developments. And all within a 15-year span.
But Glenn is certain that’s what’s on the horizon.
To put this theory into context, he lists off the 12 “commitments” of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which is also called “Our Common Agenda.”
What’s on the list will send shivers down your spine.
Before he begins reading the initiatives on the U.N.’s “road map,” Glenn tells Stu to stop him if he has an issue with anything on the list.
Number one is “leave no one behind — a new social contract [that includes] basic income programs, universal health care, and digital inclusivity.”
“I can stop you now; there’s several problems I have already,” Stu says.
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
As Glenn continues reading the United Nations’ agenda, it gets darker and darker.
Among its goals are the intentions to “[open] access to all government services to illegal immigrants,” “crack down on misinformation on the internet, including social media,” and “end free speech on the internet.”
