The only way you will really understand this concept is if you experience it yoursleves.
How can we do that?
Hop in kids, you're about to find out!
Who are you? What are you guys doing here? This is not a place where you can just stand around!!
Two students confused in a classroom because they don’t understand the concept of imperialism. Their teacher (secretly Robert Owens), tell them he can't explain imperialism in a lesson.
We are here from New Harmony and were just wondering if you could show these children what kind of things you do here. What is imperialism to you?
No matter what it takes, these workers must meet their quotas. They work hard, and we treat them well in return.
Zoom in on a magical golf cart/bus that transports the students back into time. Everyone sits down on the cart and Jeff drives into a portal.
This place is horrible. I am disgusted. We will never complain about our workload ever again! You have given us such a harmonious community.

Everyone falls into the middle of a Congo plantation (there are people gathering rubber, there is a white governer that is yelling at Africans for not gathering enough and there is the sound of screams and whips cracking). Children look around with wide eyes and horrified faces.
Well, this imperialism lesson is over. Let's get back to work on another topic!
The teacher (Owens) moves in front of the children in a defensive stance. White man gets cocky and shakes his head yes. Afterward, he cringes and leads the children to find the workers.
(Whisper) Don't listen to him!
Owens wants to show the children the slaves, so he leads the children to a cramped and shabby hut where he finds a letter with pictures. He shows them to his students and then tells them utopian socialism is better than imperialism (lifestyle, conditions, community etc.
Everyone runs back to the golf cart and Jeff drives back into the portal. Goes back to the future and they end up in the classroom.
