Storyboard Text

  • 1300-1500
  • Before urbanization, peasant farmers worked to sustain themselves by harvesting their own food. Although this was not easy, it was a sustainable livelihood. While these peasants worked... 
  • ...the nobles live in manors and lived lives of luxury, but they were isolated from other people, especially the lower class.
  • 1500-1800
  • But as urbanization increased, so did the lack of a need for small farms. For this reason, peasants began to move to larger cities and towns, unfortunately, they could not always find a decent job.
  • Now, instead of nobles, the wealthiest people were masters of commerce: factory owners, bankers, financiers. The growth of wealth for these people resulted in a drop in wealth for those who were impoverished, creating a vast gap between the upper and lower class.
  • Wow, it's truly amazing how much money we have, we have bought so many luxuries- I don't know what to do with all of our wealth!
  • Ugh, look at those dirty peasants, I wonder if they know how disgusting they are.
  • How is it fair in any way that just because they run the factories they get to lounge around all day, while we work hard and get paid practically nothing!
  • While they sit up there getting richer, we work down here getting poorer.
  • The worst part is, there's practically no way to better our position. We're stuck.
