I came across this lecture on The Industrial Revolution in the library of the long-gone Aristotle Bookshop over a decade ago, and I've been referencing it ever since. In four easy parts the estimable Robert LeFevre dismantles the infamous report written by Michael Sadler, a propagandist bromide copied with increasing relish by subsequent anti-industrialists. We've all read Dickens' version of events. Not many have read the Supplementary Report to the Sadler Report, which dispels many if not most of the misanthropic myths. LeFevre tracked down one of only four copies in existence and, in the interests of objectivity, sought to paint a warts 'n all portrait of mankind's greatest leap.
We've all heard about the 16-hour days in brutal mills and factories. Now hear the full story. Yes the days were interminably long — in summer; in winter the workers, who were paid by the hour, complained when their wages were halved by the lack of light. Listen as LeFevre explains how the state created the sweatshop with its window tax, and how the lower classes became the Great Middle Class as wages doubled and redoubled thanks to the natural forces of capitalism.
Part One loses sound quality for a period, but bear with it — it's a temporary glitch in an otherwise brilliant presentation. This lecture will arm you with all the ammo you'll need to blast holes in the arguments of those who perpetuate the lies of The Industrial Revolution.
