The election result has been having a strange effect on my friends and colleagues, there is uniform hand wringing, displays of bad temper, in my case add paranoid anxiety–understandable if you read this article from the normally staid and fuddy-duddy New York Review of Books about surveillance and secret persecution by the State. All in all resembling symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. So thanks to Amardeep Singh for linking to this excellent blog, Easily Distracted by Tim Burke, which has somewhat alleviated my suffering.
