The 'communication revolution' that the article is speaking about deals with the rise in one unified voice that helped the colonist organize there thoughts in a cohesive front against the British. "Revolution required unity, and the only way to make "from many, one" was to establish a serious and continuing conversation among the American people," The above excerpt clearly identifies that without one voice of either the newspaper or mail industry the American Revolution would not have happened. This is seen today as communication has evolved, with most recently the coup in Turkey.
The communication revolution is referring to the fact that the colonies united not only through word of mouth, but through printing. Newspapers, flyers, and handwritten speeches were spread through the colonies as a faster mean of coming together as one. Without these systems, the American revolution would have taken longer to occur, or maybe would have not happened at all.
The commmunication revolution refered to the unity of the colonies that helped them against Britain. The colonies were able to come together through newspapers, mail, and various other ways. Without those means of communication, there may have been no start of the revolution. They were able to maintain a serious and continuous conversation through print and go beyond geographical measures to ensure everyone would come together. Thus making print a communication revolution.
The communication revolution that this article is talking about is when the colonies united against Britain using new ways of communication. The colonies were able to use another form of communication which was print in order to get their message across to the masses faster. Without print, this revolution may not of been possible.
The communication revolution refers to the unification of the colonists through conversation, letters, speeches, meetings, newspapers, books, etc, all of which impressed upon the colonists the importance of coming together to form a single voice. This continuous discourse fueled the fires of revolution and inspired the colonists to rise up against the British
The communication revolution is referring to the way the colonies communicated with each other to exchange ideas and opinions to ultimately gain independence from the British. There were many different beliefs between all 13 colonies so the communication through newspapers, letters, speeches, and pamphlets helped compose them into one nation. This only goes to show that communication enables us to know what's going on outside of our own homes. It makes people feel united.
"Becoming one" was a hard reach for the colonists in the beginning. It was hard to have good communication and be able to agree with one another; and it did not help that some colonies still believed that they were considered British. What created the "communication revolution" was the unification the colonists made through newspapers, pamphlets, speeches, letters, and sharing their opinions to each other. John Adams was fascinated and commented, "...Thirteen clocks were made to strike together: a perfection of mechanism which no artist had ever before effected." because of how the colonists ended up working so well together and how quickly they became united. Without the paper, letters, and so forth; what we know now as the American people would have never existed.
The communication revolution is what brought the thirteen colonies together during the revolution. Before, the colonies had better communication with England than they had with other colonies. In order to be independent, the colonies needed better communication among themselves. Newspapers, letters, and pamphlets distributed through the mail system created the communication revolution and helped bring the colonies together.
The communication revolution was a unified way in which the thirteen colonies could communicate with each other. With the communication revolution the colonists were able to express their ideas to all the colonies to further fuel the revolution. Without the communication revolution it may have taken us longer to gain independence or we might be British still today.
The communication revolution made it possible for the thirteen colonies to come together and separate from the British. Communication is a process, and without print there would have been no revolution because the people wouldn't have been informed in time to unify.
The "communication revolution" refers to the period of time where colonists and colonies alike joined together in one common voice against the British. The article talks about how, if one colony tried taking on the British, it would fail. But with all of the colonies together as one, they stood a much better chance. I actually found it rather interesting that the colonists believed it was easier to communicate with the British than with other colonies. There was no sense of unification between the colonies before this revolution, and with the spread of newspapers, pamphlets and other sources of news, colonists became more informed, and with that more united.
