A corollary to this is that as communication changes, so does civilization. New modes of communication do not merely continue our civilization; they alter and disrupt it, for better and worse. And for this reason, we need the perspectives of history to be equipped to manage the critical task of communication in the 21st century.
Things are not the same. However, the problem of change is not new. And so we turn a lens upon the past in order to understand the present as threshold moment in civilization's evolution.
Do you agree? What is the potential to improving civilization made possible by changing communications in the 21st century? What is at risk? What moments from history best illuminate the problems and changes of our current time? What is next?
