South Africa lived many years in this system of economic exploitation, emphasizing a difference to other regions dominated, there was this exploration based on legal documents.
Blacks and mestizos, and lost all its territory could offer economically, but still had to live at predetermined locations, work in specific locations, not defy the laws, at the risk of being arrested, beaten and even killed. The right to claim all this did not exist, since it was legalized.

[...] The more consumerist society becomes, but the disadvantaged became excluded from the system, the world increasingly moving towards a division between rich and poor. Economic analysts believe that technology does not involve anything but the automation, ie only cause unemployment, but never an excess of production that could not be accessed by all (LOPES, 1990).
