The industrial revolution brought radical social change to people's everyday lives, even more so than many violent political revolutions.  Factories in particular altered the way people lived and worked. discuss the positives and negatives of this transition from an agricultural society to a manufacturing one.  We are capable of both romanticizing the way things used to be, but also perhaps not questioning enough the impact of new technologies and whether change is always for the better or not--relate these issues to the present day or even something current in your every day or working life.
