TECHNOLOGY

Just like now people still use TECHNOLOGY today, in Mesopotamia the tool that they used was technology.The history of technology is the history of the invention of tools and techniques and is similar to other sides of the history of humanity. Technology can refer to methods ranging from as simple as language and stone tools to the complex genetic engineering and information technology that has emerged since the 1980s.

SURPLUS OF FOOD

Why do we need a surplus of food? To have to ability to just go where people have the surplus at and not work all day to get it. To me surplus means the amount that is left over.

SOCIAL CLASSES

why can’t we all just be equal? some things that I know about these different social classes is the more power and money you have, the higher the class. The less power and money, the lower the class. There’s the lower class, theres the middle class, and theres the upper class. I also know that many people consider the lower class as the working class which are those employed in low-paying wage jobs. Also homeless people are considered lower class, and those who receive welfare from the state.Those who have stability and a higher pay and better work are considered middle class.
