A Few Notes before the Election
Whichever side wins the election will be the wrong one. The fact that it won means it's big enough to be dangerous.
If all of your hopes and dreams can be derailed by a chance event such as a close election, something is wrong.
The worst effect of President Trump is likely to be a tendency to think of the Democrats as the anti-racist party. I plan to deal with it by trying to locate the oldest edition of The Age of Jackson by Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. I can find. It's an ode to the founder of the Democratic Party, one of our most racist Presidents.
The worst effect of President Clinton is likely to be a tendency to think that cover-ups work. This will encourage both cover-ups and conspiracy theories.
