Great Marshall McLuhan quote:
"There is no harm in reminding ourselves from time to time that the 'Prince of this World' is a great PR man, a great salesman of new hardware and software, a great electric engineer, and a great master of the media."

McLuhan also said (and I can't find the reference) that no one at the Council of Trent in 1545-63 understood the psychic and social effects of Gutenberg being able to print Bibles; the Church is now no better off in understanding the technological impact of the electronic revolution which is terminating the Church's marriage with the West.
