The dawn of a new age in human history?

An interesting Quote from the reader's views section of yesterdays Guarniad:

"What we are witnessing is the dawn of a new age in human history, a new enlightenment, where people are learning their power and their aspirations are far higher than their situation. There is only one reason for all this, namely the communication revolution that the internet and mobile phones have brought about. This is another step in the evolution of our species, like the printing press that brought about the first enlightenment and the post service that brought the French revolution.

This will become a global phenomenon not just a Middle Eastern one. Mass communication is bringing peoples all over the world a sense of freedom that they have never had before, this is evolution, it is an interactive technology not dictated from the top down like TV but from the bottom up by individuals, it is empowering to the mind and to the individual and yet is conversely is creating a international solidarity never seen before."

I hope so
