Is the principal of the printing press still active in today's modern, high-tech society? Also, would our democratic institutions have been impossible to develop without the mass circulation of knowledge that the printing press enabled?

    Yes. The principle of the printing press is still active -- with millions of books, magazines and newspapers published each year. And I still print out information I want to study and/or keep from the internet. Our printers are variations of the printing press.

    I doubt if we could have developed our democratic institutions without the printing press and a literate population.
