The Luddites were in favor of producing cloth on primitive hand operated looms. Such looms were often in private homes where the weavers worked incredibly long hours to produce not very much cloth.
The Luddies were also in favor of NOT letting other people decide how to run their own lives. Like union thugs today they were arrogant enough to insist that their way of doing things was the only correct way and that everone else should conform to their twisted view of right and wrong.
Or one could say:
Before factories, cloth was produced by self-employed weavers, working from home. Wives and daughters would spin the yarn, and the men would weave it. When factories started up, the quantity of cloth produced by powered looms put them out of business at a stroke.
Many power looms were destroyed by many people, but an actual Mr Ludd went about the country making speeches and rabble-rousing. I think his name was James Ludd, but I'm not sure. 'Luddites' was a handy label for all the people put out of business by the new technology, and furious about it. These people ended up working for starvation wages at the factories, in the end. Plus ca change, eh? in fact i believe that it as general ludd...and that the luddites often called the operation of destroying new machines "General Ludd" the luddites were definatley for the domestic system
your actually wrong
his name was NED, NOT JAMES
thanks, I actually think your clever
WARNING THIS IS BIAS
Luddites were a group of textiles artisans who were unemployed due to the fact that new machinery's were introduced. Luddites smashed or destroyed stocking-frames that put them out of work. However Luddites were not anti-technology, but simply destroyed machines that affected their livelihood. In 1811, Britain was at war with the French, economic situation at the time was bad, the quantity of Britain's overseas trade had fallen and food prices were high, employers cut workers wages or sacked them. The Luddites were angry, and so formed a group and used an effective method of smashing stocking-frames or attacking Mills. The Authorites feared that a Revolution might take place and were horrified of the 1790's French Revolution and that it would be impossible to win the war against France if there is a Revolution. So the Authorities passed out a law called THE FRAME-BREAKING ACT, that outlawed any Luddites tactics and anyone found guilty or seen smashing stocking-frame were punishable by death. The Luddites however did not have any significance of challenging Authorities, as by 1813, economic situation improved, though there were unemployment issues. However Luddites did influence and inspired the Swing Riots.
the domestic system is where people work at home with there own rules. they work with there family but it is a lot slower process than the factory system. the factory system w is where ou get a salary i job and in that job lots to do n you were beaten if you did not work. in te factory system the only winner was the head of the factory everyone else obeted rules and earned a rubbish wage.
