The bourgeoisie, however, did not only forge the weapons that will give death to it; she also produced the men who will manejaro these weapons? the modern laborers, the proletarians. Marx in turn believed that one day would arrive where the proletariat if would acquire knowledge, joining themselves and taking the control of the means of production. In such a way the end of the supremacy of the bourgeoisie would arrive. Marx was the main source where all that did not agree to the new model that was being tax for the modern state, they searched inspirations. Certainly the socialist ones led for Robert Owen also? they had drunk of this source. At this time marked for an industrial revolution, the plants emerging in all the parts, provide a social inaquality, motivated for the ambition of the proprietor of the industry, when the workers were submitted the days of up to 16 daily hours, not escaping nor women and children. Robert Owen, who is considered one of the parents of the socialism, that this if did not place against the industry, but nailed that the industry in itself is beneficial, making possible the reduction in price of the consumption goods. For Owen, what it was made a mistake, it was the form with that these industries were if developing, to the cost of penalizaes to the workers, in function of the enrichment of the capitalist owners of the means of production.

Its proposal was that the plant had to be controlled for the laborers and the final result of the work distributed igualitariamente between all, thus justice would be made stops with the kept out of society workers. It defended that around of the plants they were created cooperative, and helped to establish many of these, that had not obtained to function for much time. Had reaction on the part of capitalists industrial, that had started to attack the organizations of workers in form of retaliation, being made lists with names and banishing laborers who had affinity with the owenista thought, these finished being dismissed, and many of these organizations of workers as unions and cooperatives had been closed and passed to the clandestinidade.
