The Leavers date back to 3,000,000 B.C. The Takers, on the other hand, came into being around 8000 B.C., starting with the agricultural revolution, which continues to the present day. The agricultural revolution provided the foundation of the vast Takers civilizations that spread throughout the world - its manifesto is that “revolution was necessary” for progress, and hence must continue at all costs (154). Consequently, the Leavers get left behind with little land and little power to control their own destiny.
