    Description:
       The phonetic alphabet gave us individuality, and specialised jobs, while electronic images give us electronic tribes in the global village, and roles instead of jobs.

    My role interestingly is Mole, you may meet Mole by clicking on http://www.online-literature.com/grahame/windwillows/1/

    dotsNotre Dame and Civilisationdots
    -------------------------------------------


    The ashes of civilisation are falling over Paris. Yes, Notre Dame Cathedral is burning.

    Christianity brought us the phonetic alphabet from the Greco Roman Empire, and created us as literate individuals, with an individual salvation.

    And just as Notre Dame is burning, the phonetic alphabet is burning, and the literate individual is gasping in the smoke.

    And outside, the etribes, the electronic tribes of the global village, await. They await us: unempathic, while ceaselessly waging identity warfare.

    In our grief we make a pathetic promise to rebuild Notre Dame in five years, while three thousand years of the phonetic alphabet burn in front of us.

    Civilization is burning, and the barbarian tribes await us at the gate.
