17.What has the telephone done to us, or for us, in the hundred years of its existence? A few effects suggest
themselves at once. It has saved lives by getting rapid word of illness, injury, or famine from remote places. By
joining with the elevator to make possible the multistory residence or office building, it has made possible, for better or worse, the modern city. By bringing about a quantum leap in the speed and ease with which information moves
from place to place, it has greatly accelerated the rate of scientific and technological change and growth in industry. Beyond doubt, it has crippled if not killed the ancient art of letter writing. It has made living alone possible for
persons with normal social impulses;
by so doing, it has played a role in one of the greatest social changes in family structures. It has made the waging
of war chillingly more efficient than formerly. Perhaps (though not provably) it has prevented wars that might have
arisen out of international misunderstanding caused by written communication. Or perhaps, again not provably, by
magnifying and extending irrational personal conflicts based on voice contact, it has caused wars. Certainly it has
extended the scope of human conflicts, since it impartially disseminates the useful knowledge of scientists and the
babble of bores, the affection of the affectionate and the malice of the malicious. 【題組】【題組】47The passage is mainly about _____ .
