I'm not sure that the industrial revolution was a good thing at all now, it seems to have created bigger problems. I think maybe we would be better off going back to living off the land, I even think hunter gatherers had a better time of it than we do these days.It will be an on going conversation and looking for improvement for the world. Maybe one day we will end up back to where we started. This could be horse and cart. Build more waterways and transport goods on Via the waterways.
