Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The "not very effective population checks" are a clear feature of the industrial revolution era.
implies very clearly that it was not a feature of the preceding epochs.

Which is wrong, as anybody who has even cursory familiarity with European economic and demographic history would know.

Rlight, that implies that it is not a feature of anything else, anywhere anywhen. And that there was no Europe exceptionality in the last thousand years.
