You may test that assumption at your convinience.
It takes less resources to make sure the benches don't get cold. The ground is tile and concrete, which sap heat.
Capitalism is only distinct from feudalism in the same sense that a 2022 Corvette is distinct from a Model T Ford. It's a new and improved version, but it's not really different in concept.
Under feudalism, all economic and political power was concentrated in the hands of a small wealthy elite who owned all of the valuable property. If you didn't own land, then you were nobody and you didn't matter.
Under capitalism, all economic and political power is also concentrated in the hands of a small wealthy elite who own all of the valuable property. If you don't own property, then you are nobody and you don't matter.
The biggest difference is that capitalism has invented new kinds of property: intellectual property, corporate shares, etc. And property ownership has been atomized: instead of huge tracts of land being owned by feudal lords, smaller parcels of it are owned by larger numbers of citizens. But creating a class of mini-lords does not change the basic equation. The basic equation remains the same: if you don't own property, then you are nobody and you don't matter.
I mean... fucker ain't wrong.

We hear a lot about inflation, and recently we've been hearing about shrinkflation. But what about cheapflation? That's just a word I made up for something you all know: companies make products shittier and shitter over time because they want to cut corners on quality so they can make more profit.
I recently had to replace the batteries in my door lock, and THREE OUT OF FOOR batteries had exploded. These aren't cheap batteries either: they were Duracells. I'm sick of this shit. Battery ruptures were not this common when I was growing up.
You didn't need to include the noun there, you already established the context of the era, and most of us already know that back then "man" meant: white, catholic, and of specifically british origin. None of that irish or scottish trash.
