    Wiki that. Even though it’s not the most reliable source, I doubt that anyone would mess around with the industrial revolution page. You could probably find a lot of things on google if you don’t trust Wikipedia.

    Think about it. What was society like before the industrial revolution? And what has it developed into now?

    Why do you think cities became so densely populated and diverse? And how were people finally able to move up the social ladder more freely?

    I think the whole purpose of it was for efficiency, and now we keep producing more things than we can afford to buy, and we have become very relient on technology. There is alot you could write about.
