The Continuing World-wide Pogrom.

Post-mercantile, pre-industrial Capitalism
was founded on slavery, which was founded
on ships and navigation.

Then came the Industrial Revolution,
which really should be called the Industrial
Global Pogrom of craftsmen/women/children,

founded on colonial exploitation,
which was founded on improved navigation.

The rich became fewer and fewer,
richer and richer, so that
at the end there were less than a hundred
who owned and bickered over the drowned
and screaming, burnt-up world
before they barricaded themselves
and perished underground.
