As humans began to develop new technologies and systems we found out what worked and what didn’t. Society used to circulate around family and communities, in which the supply and demand played a big part in life in terms of trading services when needed. Essentially favors were the currency. There were also kingdoms that had more of a structure with taxes in place (pg.356, Harari). As most things do, this whole system of community and family fell, bringing the industrial revolution into light. The industrial revolution brought new capabilities to the market in the form of transportation, communication, and gave the government social work in order to better society. This new state and market overcame family bonds and communities. An example that perfectly describes this transformation is family feuds being managed by the courts in stead of resulting instead of being a reoccurring problem in families (pg.359, Harari). The new state and market gave people and chance to become a new person and stray away from their families values. It lead people to be more self dependent and less involved in traditional family ways.
Historians study and past and how past events have shaped our world today, or something along those lines. I think the future of homo sapiens is up in the air right now and the end could be a possibility in the coming centuries. Historians should work in part with companies and developers who are at the forefront of modern technology. For example the bio film lab here at MSU has many different professionals with a wide array of knowledge, but there are not any historians working at the lab. I believe historians will play a vital role in the coming years with the progression of new technology.
