Glenn: Americans need this famous quote about 'dangerous unselfishness' more than ever

Glenn Beck

The night before he was assassinated, Dr. Martin Luther King called for “dangerous unselfishness” in what would be his last speech. “Be concerned about your brother,” King said. “[E]ither we go up together, or we go down together. Let us develop a kind of dangerous unselfishness.”

On Tuesday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck pointed to King’s last speech as inspiration for Americans today.

“That speech is so worth your time reading,” he said. “You want to talk about courage?”

Our country is more and more divided as people become more selfish and can increasingly focus on themselves with social media, and the weekend’s horrifying events in Charlottesville are just one example of that division.

“We’re isolating ourselves in little, teeny communities where even our closest friends and our family [are] being kicked out of that community if they disagree with us,” Glenn said. “Technology is pouring gasoline on this. Information, entertainment has become our teacher and our god.”
