Marshall McLuhan's Neighborhood

Electric circuitry has overthrown the regime of 'time' and 'space' and pours down upon us instantly and continuously the concerns of all other men. It has re-constitued dialog on a global scale. Its message is Total Change, ending psychic, social, economic, and political parochialism. The old civic, state, and national groupings have become un-workable. Nothing can be further from the spirit of the new technology than "a place for everything and everything for a place." You can't go home again.


Herbert Marshall McLuhan July 21, 1911 – December 31, 1980
