    Revolution. In 1776 our postmaster was Ben Franklin and we may have had the best postal system in the world. That enabled the Committees of Correspondence (remember them from high school American History? Here's a refresher:   ) to wrest considerable power from the Royal authorities, and even organize a shadow government and our revolution.

    Good communication is important for business. It's also important for democracy, and for the ability to organize opposition to a repressive government.
