The pen is mightier than the sword

The written word is more to be feared than the physical force. ‘Tyranny has not enemy as formidable as the pen,’ wrote William Cobbett , and John Taylor gave us this:

Pens are most dangerous tools, more sharp by odds
Than swords, and cut more keen than whips of rods.

As a commentary on the XXI century it can be suggested that although the pen is mightier than the sword, even mightier than the pen is television and the Internet.
