A time where humanity had witness an evolution to their life cycle when humans started to build machines that would make their lives easier. Although this brought out a great achievement to the world. Arnold explains how this also brought out a lot of ignorance, violence, corruption and selfishness to humanity since the "Industrial Revolution" was known as dark time for England since poverty and violence was increased during that time.
