Bitter feeling that the history is an endless spiral.
We left Liverpool with hard feelings. It used to be a powerful industrial city in a country, which invented and actually made the industrial revolution in the first place. Nothing is left here now. Huge docks of Liverpool are demolished, except for a little piece left for tourist amusement. However, in spite of this, Liverpool possesses quite important harbor. Factories that used to boil with life are closed and abandoned. Lonely creepy places. The UK, as well as the majority of European countries, moved the industry to Asia. Even if life during the years of Industrial blossoming was far from being easy and happy (poverty, childwork, unhuman conditions, horrible destinies), it is the way that the countries become powerful (and exactly the way that China is getting more and more influential these days). If you don’t conquer and smash, you will be smashed and conquered instead. That’s the way we are, and it can’t be different. Liverpool reminded us about it once again.
