The counter-reformation is coming

"[The digital revolution] is the biggest thing to happen in communications since the printing press. Blogs and YouTube videos are passed around from Basra to Bradford, flooding society in the same way vernacular Bibles and pamphlets exploded into 15th-century Europe. Established authorities were complacent about their monopoly on information. Now, they are like the Catholic hierarchy when people stopped listening to the Latin liturgy and started reading the Gospel and interpreting it for themselves. This is a media Reformation." —Rafel Behr
