Technological Advances & Military Goals…

“As soon as technological advances may be applied to military goals, and furthermore are already used for military purposes, they almost immediately seem obligatory, and also often go against the will of the commanders in triggering changes or even revolutions in the modes of combat.”

Frederich Engels (1820 to 1895)

German socialist philosopher, and the closest collaborator of Karl Marx in the foundation of modern communism. They co-authored The Communist Manifesto (1848), and Engels edited the second and third volumes of Das Kapital after Marx’s death.
