The rage mobs strike again, and now we’re not allowed to say “INVASION.” We may be at the peak of a massively tribalistic “WE” generation, but social media could course-correct us faster than we expected. Journalist Elijah Schaffer joins the program with his FIRSTHAND look at last Saturday’s Proud Boys/Antifa protests in Portland. Long story short, instead of swinging back at oppression, we should learn from the peaceful protests in Hong Kong. And while Bill Maher HOPES for a recession, we should read the fine print and focus more on our growing debt. Corporations are also making some strange decisions: the NFL is teaming up with Jay-Z, and author Michael Rectenwald believes that Google is PUSHING for authoritarian-style constant surveillance.
We need to watch our words: PC cancellation culture is everywhere, and now “invasion” is off-limits. Journalist Elijah Schaffer joins the program to discuss the violence he saw firsthand at last Saturday’s Antifa protests in Portland. Michael Rectenwald speaks on Google, corporate capitalism, and constant surveillance.
Glenn and the “notorious” former NYU professor, Michael Rectenwald, both believe that Big Tech, China, and the Left share similar - authoritarian - goals. Rectenwald’s newest book, “The Google Archipelago,” explores just that. In it, he imagines a world that’s sounding more familiar each day: 5G, AI, transhumanism, constant connection to the internet, and all the possibilities that opens up – digital erasing, book burning, Revelation-style marking, and the creation of what he calls “digital gulags.” In this interview, Glenn and Rectenwald discuss the power we give to Big Tech companies, why they’re helping China control its people, and what’s in store for us. Because, as they note, evil comes dressed fashionably, saying it’s for our own good.
