The story I want to tell you now is the oldest story in the
book. It's the defining story of humanity, and it goes like this:
A new tool comes along. Men see it in the world or in their
minds. They strive to reach it, attain it, hold it aloft for a
moment's wonder. Then they wield it wisely or wantonly, and
in so doing they transform a society—a tribe, village, city,
corporation, nation-state, or global institution, spreading the
effects on up the evolutionary ladder of civilization

--Pat Forde In Spirit

Interesting view.
