There is a small possibility that Louis C.K. just changed the outcome of the 2024 election. This could be the tipping point. People could wake up and see what the extreme left stands for. Someone might ask, "What do they stand for?" It is about giving away everything you have earned.

A clip of comedian Louis C.K. on the Joe Rogan show has been circulating on X (formerly Twitter) this week in which he goes on and on about how opening up the southern border would be a good thing because Americans shouldn't have such a high standard of living compared to the rest of the world, how poor people in other countries just want what Americans have, and how it's not fair that we have so much. "It shouldn't be so great here," he says. So open the border and let them pour in.
It's possible he's joking, that it's just a comedy bit he's practicing. That's what my friend Inez Stepman thinks. Get liberals to nod along in agreement and then expose the consequences of such an insane idea. You can judge for yourself:
I don't think it comes off as a joke but as an almost perfect distillation of globalist liberalism. Louis C.K. cannot fathom why Americans should have a say about who comes into their country and who does not. He clearly has no real allegiance to his country or countrymen, and is actually embarrassed by their prosperity — and presumably his own as well.
There is nothing special about America, according to this view, and no reason the rest of the world should not enjoy her ill-gotten riches. Opening the border is the least we could do for the cause of justice.
Whether it's a joke or not, the substance of what Louis C.K. articulates is the logical endpoint of leftist ideology. It's what the mainstream left believes — and the Biden administration has been actively working to accomplish at the southern border.

On September 9, 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted a new name for what had been called the "United Colonies." The moniker United States of America has remained since then as a symbol of freedom and independence.
Many commentators have claimed that a recently-updated Cochrane Review shows that 'masks don't work', which is an inaccurate and misleading interpretation.
It would be accurate to say that the review examined whether interventions to promote mask wearing help to slow the spread of respiratory viruses, and that the results were inconclusive. Given the limitations in the primary evidence, the review is not able to address the question of whether mask-wearing itself reduces people's risk of contracting or spreading respiratory viruses.
The review authors are clear on the limitations in the abstract: 'The high risk of bias in the trials, variation in outcome measurement, and relatively low adherence with the interventions during the studies hampers drawing firm conclusions.'
