Glenn Beck had a conversation with students -- many of whom have never before voted in a presidential election -- about 2016 and the state of the world in an episode of The Glenn Beck Program that aired Monday.
The conversation resembled a philosophy class, with Beck asking the students questions and seeing how they responded.
He also focused on how much the world has changed in recent years with the Internet and social media.
"You have all the power," he told them. "You are Thomas Paine. You are a publisher now. You are somebody who can say their views to everyone in the world. ... You're a filmmaker. You're everything. You don't need the middleman anymore."
Beck said old institutions are "terrified" by what the changes might bring.
"They can only listen to each other because they've got to hold on to their power, and you're about to take it from them," he remarked. "We're about to experience freedom unlike we've ever had at any time in the history of mankind, if you can keep it -- it's the Ben Franklin [quote]."
