Creations that fall into this category are distinguished by their attempt to be more pluralistic than their predecessors, incorporating far-flung elements from the past to create a new whole, a collage. Since the tongue body posture is adjusted, these articulations always occur simultaneously with the basic articulatory gesture. Perhaps it is more interesting to examine how the church reacted to our visit. It’s certainly dubious as to whether laying down this “ethical and moral framework” would have any real effect on the lifestyles of commoners. Indeed, the current technological revolution we are living through has prompted a similarly wide range of critical response. But it might be worthwhile to make a less cynical analysis.

During the past four hundred years, however, political systems such as democracy have gained considerable acceptance.
