- More Tolkien:
“He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.”
Or he doesn’t think it will affect him personally. He’s probably wrong about that.
I’ve gotten emails and twitters from friends who are shaken and sad about what just happened. I feel the same. So I am in the process of setting up a podcast to talk about it. I kept putting it off during the campaign but now, I think we need it. More details to follow.
In the meantime, if the shock is wearing off, use the comment thread to vent. We have a right to be angry. Who do you think bears the most responsibility for this failure?
I’m holding the press as the number 1 culprit. Coverage of this election was too long, too shallow and too driven towards profit over civic responsibilty.
But pick your favorite unhelpful entity.
