A few links from after th'election

I'm just putting some stuff here for easy reference. Can you can tell a lot about someone from the sources they choose to pay attention to? I wonder how skewed my perspective is, compared to anyone else's…

Long talks by Blyth and Schiller (I idolize Blyth):

The article by Thomas Frank that was referenced above: "Donald Trump is moving to the White House, and liberals put him there" (I also recently read and loved Frank's latest book Listen, Liberal.)

David Swanson discusses "elections and other catastrophes" with Paulette Spencer:

Two excerpts from Glenn Greenwald on Democracy Now:

Also this article by Greenwald: "Democrats, Trump, and the Ongoing, Dangerous Refusal to Learn the Lesson of Brexit"

…the Nov. 10 program from Open Source with Christopher Lydon

And the last two sentences from Bernie Sanders's recent statement:

To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him. To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.
