Based on the contributions of critical theory, the present text aims to expose in which ways the State intervenes in technological advancement within the capitalist system and the conditions in which it grants tools, both to ruling classes and to the dominated classes, to access, develop and implement technology. The argument that is upheld is that the state apparatus has to cover the necessary conditions so that knowledge in technological matters continues to be generated, but it is also essential that it provide the pertinent conditions so that the working class has the appropriate tools to be able to operate it.
