However it was his biggest fear. The demand of the consumer, the machines and computers could be best described as the nightmare of labor in Marx vision. Marx calls it the feudal system, the system that works on demand.
"This industrial revolution was precipitated by the discovery of the steam engine, various spinning machines, the mechanical loom, and a whole series of other mechanical devices. These machines, which were very expensive and hence could be bought only by big capitalists, altered the whole mode of production and displaced the former workers, because the machines turned out cheaper and better commodities than the workers could produce with their inefficient spinning wheels and handlooms. The machines delivered industry wholly into the hands of the
big capitalists and rendered entirely worthless the meager property of the workers (tools, looms, etc.). The result was that the capitalists soon had everything in their hands and nothing remained to the workers. This marked the introduction of the factory system into the textile industry."

Imperialism itself in the wealthy countries like the US drive the economy. The world market demand can be done in a minute now.

They came from the Feudal society according to Marx still with class antagonisms, with the establishment of new classes, conditions of oppression and new forms of struggles. Marx describes in his book exactly why this is not good. He states in his words: "Our epoch, the
epoch of the bourgeoisie, possesses, however, this distinctive feature: it has simplified the class antagonisms. Society as a whole is more and more splitting up into two great hostile camps,
into two great classes, directly facing each other: Bourgeoisie and Proletariat.
The monthly review states the bourgeoisie as follows: "The class of big capitalists, who, in all civilized countries, are already in almost exclusive possession of all the means of subsistence and of the instruments (machines, factories) and materials necessary for the production of the means of subsistence. This is the bourgeois class, or the bourgeoisie."
According to Marx they came " From the serfs
