    But it was very subdued. Most of us are Burners/hippies/progressives. We have worked for more than 30 years to get the meager social gains our society has been enjoying recently, and watched decades of our good work get completely dismantled in three short days.

Can you elaborate how today is any different than 3 days ago? In my little corner of reality nothing has changed. How have we regressed 30 years in the scope of a day? I would argue that if we did any regression it would have occurred much earlier when the Hillary cheated her way to the democratic nomination.

I feel like some of the conversations we had leading up the the elections were subdued mostly because we didn't want to offend one another or get into another pointless augment about who was at fault or who is more wrong.
