Ineffective governments, economic meltdowns, civil unrest, and endless wars have plagued nations for centuries creating the perfect storm for all out revolution. Now, with North Korea knocking at our door, the national debt at $19 trillion and rising, an already weakened economy, and civil unrest in the streets; America is witnessing difficult times that haven’t been seen since perhaps the 1960s.
Glenn called these factors ‘pressure points’ and questioned how long nations can endure them before war and total chaos erupts.
“How many pressure points can a nation endure?” asserted Glenn Beck on today’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
“If you study revolution, there are always three things that are present in every single one: economic instability, war, and civil unrest.”
While no one factor can be solely responsible for the French Revolution, years of feudalism, taxation without representation, abuse of the disenfranchised, and a failure to manage the French treasury led to the French storming the Bastille in 1789.
“The pressure points are being pushed and we have tough times ahead,” added Glenn.
