Communication is undergoing a revolution. This will impact our conversations about religion, politics, and society. IP PBX and Satelite Internet are making our world a closer knit place. I am interested in what you guys think the impact will be on religious conversation. Will these changes in communication polarize our preferences as people are able to find people who 'think like' them. Or will increased communication broaden our tolerance? What do you guys think?

From a sociological perspective globalisation and regionalisation go hand in hand. In other words: the very awareness of differences makes people retreat into their own communities more.

Applied to religion: religious fundamentalism USES the new technologies as much as religiously tolerant people do. Re: Saddam Hussein videos etc. I'm not just talking Islam fundamentalism, but also Christian fundamentalism, Buddhist fundamentalism and even Blavatskyan fundamentalism.

Which means that fighting for tolerance is just as important and difficult as it always was. Only the way it's done changes.
