“[N]ewspapers have transformed… unified in space and diversified in time the conversation of individuals… even those who do not read papers but who, talking to those who do, are forced to follow the groove of their borrowed thoughts. One pen suffices to set off a million tongues.”

Gabriel Tarde, “On Opinion and Conversation,” 1898
