In the eighteenth century, books and novels were seen as instruments of both revolutionary and evolutionary change. It was believed that the wisdom spread by the printed paper would eventually push the world towards a more democratic society where despotism would be banished. Hence, Louise-Sebastien Mercier, an eighteenth century French novelist made the statement - "Tremble, therefore, tyrants of the world! Tremble before the virtual writer!"
