Machines.


Since the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th Century machines have dominated commerce.

And the human beings who work these machines have become part of the machines.

Workers are no longer people they are work units.

They are judged by their productivity alone.

This dehumanization of the work force has had serious repercussions.

William Blake called the machines Satanic.

But treating people like machines does not produce the best results.

They will resent it and deceive their masters.

Who will respond with threats and cuts.

The workplace should be like a family.

Workers should feel valued and loved.

Then they will produce their best.
