Sounds like we’re still living through the schism of Reformation. Francophones often talk about Charlemagne as the reason we have compulsory education (we have songs about that). Anglophones (especially Prostestants) often talk about the Printing Press as the key turning point in the history of Civilisation.
Our technolibertarian world is much closer to the latter than the former. So are transhumanists, as opposed to posthumanists.
