Only white supremacists simpletons would think that closing the border would solve the open borders fiasco. My intellectual mentor @KamalaHarris understands causal nuances, and accordingly she is seeking to identify the root causes of why people come to the US illegally.
If they are fleeing say Honduras for better economic opportunities in the US, it is necessary for the US to build up the economy of Honduras so that Hondurans no longer feel compelled to come here. A border wall would be racist but billions of dollars to Honduras is empathetic.
Similarly, if you suffer from diabetes, we could try to regulate your blood sugar levels or we could look for the root causes of why soda companies create sugar products that are bad for your health. Hence, by granting companies billions of dollars to stop from producing such
products, this will be the best and most effective way to regulate your blood sugar levels. One final example: Suppose that you are hit by a speeding car and are laying dying on the street. We can call an ambulance or we can look for the root cause of why the drunk driver felt
the need to drink and drive. Sure we could seek to provide you with immediate medical care because you are dying but nuanced thinkers look for root causes. Got it bigot? @joebiden & @KamalaHarris are deep thinkers endowed with an infinite capacity to seek root causes.

A lot of simpletons think that closing the border is the way to solve the open border crisis. The only way to solve the border crisis is to address the root causes, namely climate change, hatred toward the LGBTQ community, and misogyny. @KamalaHarris is truly a historic figure.
Unlike insurrectionists, white supremacists, and white-adjacent hacks, @VP understands causal effects. People fleeing Guatemala to settle in Orange County are fleeing rising carbon emissions. Build solar panels and you solve the border crisis. It's that simple. People fleeing
El Salvador are fleeing the dangerous levels of transphobia (and this includes the cisnormative members of MS-13). Create more inclusion and they won't try to crash the borders. Mexicans seeking to settle in Illinois are fleeing the thin ideal images that are promulgated by

Let me type slowly so that the slow ones can follow. The Trump issue is a manifestation of a much larger theme, namely the hysterical tribalism that caused people to lose nuance, measured reasoning, rational thought, epistemic integrity, etc. Therein lies my ire.
If you spend your entire life positing that you are a well-measured intellectual but then you scream hysterically for four years that the world is going to end because bruh Trump, it is as injurious to reason as to be a flat-earther. Hence, my positions are not personal to Sam
nor specific to Trump. They happen to be the protagonists in this theatre of the absurd but they represent a larger problem of reasoning. Yes, I agree with Sam on countless issues, and he is an otherwise great guy. But his inability to modulate his hysteria, and his calculated

Most people in the West have been taught to not criticize a religion, as this would apparently be intolerant and gauche. OK. What cumulative evidence would you need to violate this norm? Has this evidence not yet been amassed? Are all religions equally compatible with our
Western values? For example, are all religions equally accepting of members of the LGBTQ community? Is the West allowed to state that it does not wish to accept such hate even if it originates from a religion? What will it take for people to recognize the world as it exists
rather than to view it through the prism of suicidal unicorn empathy and tolerance. You will pay a dear price for this myopia. Or more accurately, your children and their children will pay an unimaginable price. Once the train of intolerance anchors itself within a society, it

I often ask people to estimate the number of Jews in the world (as I did on a recent episode of @joerogan's podcast). The usual response is an extraordinary overestimate of the actual number precisely because most people wrongly presume that given the level of influence that Jews
wield in many domains, they must be much more populous than the actual figure. A result of this miscalibration is that people have a hard time casting Jews as victims (even though they have been victimized throughout history and continue to be so). Hence, folks who know nothing
about history will often side with the perpetrators of grotesque and endemic violations of human rights as long as they are viewed as victims of the Evil Juice. If anything this is a form of epistemological anti-Semitism, in that one processes incomplete information to arrive to

When it comes to your weight, on any given day one of three things can happen: 1) weight remains the same as the previous day; 2) weight loss occurs; 3) weight gain occurs. These three states cover all possibilities. Now let us analogize to the level of Jew-hatred in society.
One of three things can happen when comparing time t to time t+1: 1) it can remain the same; 2) it can decrease; 3) it can increase. The number 1 driver (by a mile) of which of the latter three is likely to occur is shaped by demography. If you were to open the borders to folks
who have little to no Jew-hatred in their home countries, they will not express Jew-hatred in their adopted country. Now if you open the borders to folks who have 95% to 99% endemic genocidal Jew-hatred in their home countries (as measured by non-partisan survey organizations),

Group A attacks group B again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again,...,and again, and again. After 13 trillion attacks, subjugation, insults, death threats, exterminations, waged wars, etc, group B retaliates.

Group A: You see, Group B are the aggressors. We
have peacefully sought to exterminate Group B with complete love & tolerance. We teach our children that Group B is filth. We teach them to destroy Group B. Every interaction in our society is shaped by our Noble Hatred of Group B. And now Group B attacks us. Why God? Why? Why?
Why does Group B act in such an inhumane way? Why do they attack us when all that we have done is spent our entire lives seeking to exterminate them? Why is Group B so evil? Why God? Why?

[This is a hypothetical case that in no way relates tohistorical or current realities.]
