The Industrial Revolution has been very controversial in relation to its time period and occurrence in Britain; however, regardless of when or if it happened, something occurred that developed a need for working classes and a class of people to rule those laboring classes.
Britain developed a more dichotomous structure between the ‘haves’, the bourgeoisie which were replacing the landed aristocrats, and the lower working classes which were referred to as the ‘have nots’.
The adoption of a utilitarian system of ethics combined with the industrialization of Britain led to exploited, mechanized working classes that were too fragmented to produce a change in harsh working conditions and overcome the power held by the new bourgeoisie.
