What is “the Industrial Revolution as a system” and why is 1760 a hard start date, you need to explain why you’re saying this

Tsarus's starting point is that society is going to collapse by 2110 and we will abandon farming.

If/when we abandon farming then the people who did farm will most likely be worshiped for their former power over the lives of other beings from what I have been reading here. But I may be wrong and I most likely am.

Thats dumb. If society collapses we’re going back to 17th century technology, not the Stone Age.
And hell now that I think about it agriculture arose in the Neolithic.

That image doesn't work. It needs to be a valid url for the image to work, you can't just link to files on your computer directly.

Has anyone here ever put a band around the top of a western hat and then put the feathers of various birds found on the ground in the band and then just worn it to work?

An everchanging number of people usually staying in between 30 and 10 people not including me. I also see that one more person said Agriculture was of little use.

The historical trend is towards automation. If city folk pay close attention, they will see their own fate in that of the farm worker.

Way back, that was a good paying job. Keeping slaves to do the work, was profitable, but not by so much (slaves needed managers, and troublesome slaves were a dead loss, even considering lynching saving money on ammo). Paid farm workers were still competitive with slaves elsewhere on plantations: wages paid were less significant that crops planted, region by region.

But the historical trend is towards automation, and less demand for skilled farm labor. As a city elite type, all the advice I can offer is move to the city. Stay honest, employers appreciate that. Pick the job you really want, get the training, always look out for opportunity (even the high end employers see honesty as employable) and follow your dreams. Farmers offer you lifelong employment, but they don't always deliver, because automation or termination of their business plan. The city offers every other kind of career.

The bottom line is: if half or more than half, of the kids you knew in high school, have moved to a city? Then move to a city. Being a big fish in a small pond means you have to eat smaller fish, who you went to school with. Move to the city. Moral anonymity for the win!

It is said that whenever someone moves to the city looking for good work from the country they usually end up coming back.

There should be more farms. Farms help to create an appreciation for and a connection to the land and to the animals. I like farms.
