Watch the video here
Never thought I’d recommend anyone to watch anything by Glenn Beck… because it’s GOOD. But I was quite moved. You probably would be, too.
Like Andrew Sullivan says, Beck is a genuine clown. I think Beck knows (and he kind of says it here) it’s true, to some extent. He is perhaps best viewed as a great TV personality, a good ‘talker’ of issues. When I watch Beck, the truth becomes irrelevant (in addition to because he is often factually incorrect) because I watch it for his theatrics, and sometimes you get something that’s actually pretty good, like this.
In addition to condemning of the anti-gay and ‘anti-human’ gang attacks, Beck devoted the last few minutes of the segment discussing the deterioration of ‘the human connection’. Here, Beck echoes my sentiments almost perfectly in believing that the advent of communication technologies has slowly disarmed us of abilities to interact with each other in the most fundamental way: face to face.
