Bakunin used it in the congress at Berne in 1868, to oppose it to the communistic régime of Cabet.
Cabet, in Corsica, joined the radical anti-administration forces, and became a thorn in the side of the government.
Though educated for the bar, Cabet devoted himself to social and political reform.
Cabet thereupon framed a constitution and sought the means of founding a real Icaria.
The society soon became involved in a controversy in which Cabet's immediate following were outnumbered.
