(1) War developed earlier than peace; the way in which certain economic 
relations such as wage labour, machinery etc. develop earlier, owing to 
war and in the armies etc., than in the interior of bourgeois society. 
The relation of productive force and relations of exchange also 
especially vivid in the army.
