Three excellent election links

barbed wire

  1. Chapati Mystery quotes Urdu poetry and aspires to more than survival. Not so much about the election as about who we become now.
  2. Samir Chopra on how the American disdain for unions has been our downfall. 
  3. Ethan Zuckerman on insurrectionism vs institutionalism. The best theoretical explanation for Trump’s election that we have seen yet.

I’m still offering free coaching to anyone needing help to move on after the election. It will be targeted to do just that: find a way to move on, do your part in opposing harmful policies, and retrieve some level of personal happiness. If you want to discuss job interviews, you have to go for regular old paid coaching. (I’ve helped people find some great jobs, though, so it’s a decent investment.) If you’re interested in free coaching, email me at or just sign up using the scheduler at the bottom of the page and include a note that you’re requesting the free coaching.
