Very interesting Dollar Bill - clearly there is nothing new under the sun.
However, the internet is faster and cuts out the middle man - a good thing. Isn't it great that people from different countries/different languages (Google translate) can communicate directly at this time. It has its shadow side of course (just as pamphlets were used for ill in previous times) but on the whole it is a really good thing.
I suppose the one difference - in the 16th Century the masses were communicated TO whereas with the internet the masses are communicating with each other. It feels a bit less of a hierarchy of information.
