πŸ“± New technology gives power to the people

When the church struck against Martin Luther 500 years ago and excommunicated him, it should have been the end for him and his movement.

That obviously did not happen.

Why not?

Because Luther used a new revolutionary technique to get his message out: the printing press.

In the past, people had received almost all of their information about the church, in the church, from the church. But now there was an alternative.

Many complain about new technologies because what Luther did creates a commotion. But the alternative is for power to be concentrated in a few individuals or organizations.

Every time that happens, we should find ways to transfer power to more and more people through democracy and new technology.
