“and this is something that people are terrified of.” – McLuhan, 1968.
“People have always been unaware of new environments because they’re afraid of ‘em. From the moment of birth, people sense that the new environment around them is hostile; it’s a real threat to their whole existence. And so every time an environment changes, we hasten to seek security in the old environment.”
“The new is always made up of the old, or rather what people see in the new is always the old thing; the rear view mirror.”
“The future of the future is the present, and this is something that people are terrified of.” Marshall McLuhan
