 THE THIRD INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION?
(Today' Blog:  Your post must include a response to both questions and an additional question of your own based on the topic.  You must respond to, two posts and respond to their thinking question.)

The first industrial revolution began in Britain in the late 18th century, with the mechanisation of the textile industry.  The second industrial revolution came in the early 20th century, when Henry Ford mastered the moving assembly line, thus the start of mass production. 

 If there is a third industrial revolution, what do you see as the factory of the future?  How will these changes affect the job market that you will be facing in the next 5-10 years?

A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by:  Charles Dickens


Industrial Revolution in England:  The Industrial Revolution of the 19th century made possible the manufacture of cheaper toys and goods for people to exchange with each other.  It created a class of poor factory workers who lived in miserable, crowded conditions, and it also created a class of wealthy business owners.  In A Christmas Carol, Dickens urged these wealthy citizens to give to the poor at Christmas, helping to establish the tradition of charity during this holiday season.

In Scene I Scrooge is quoted as saying, ".. if they would rather die, they had better do it and decrease the surplus population."  

What does Scrooge mean by this quote?  Do you feel that our society today has the same attitude towards the poor and destitute as did the businessmen of the Victorian Era?
