Mc Luhan and the Antichrist

Hypothesis: Mc Luhan notes that communications technology is an extension of the nervous system. But the nervous system could not stand to be extended by itself – an eye that could only see and not touch – but will seek to grow a pair of hands to control and manipulate the things its sees. If this is right, national communications will pull towards a national centralization and control of things. Global communications are the embryo of global governance.

    This is more than an hypothesis.
