However, since Marx claims that the final form of primitive accumulation mentioned above, the separation of labourers from the ownership of the means of production, is ‘the real foundation in fact, and the starting point of capitalist production’ (1974a, 535 [1976, 716]), it might be helpful to look at this third type of primitive accumulation in a little more detail here. Instead of working 6 hours necessary labour for their own reproduction and 6 hours for the capitalist, as we assumed was the normal arrangement in a CMP in a working day of 12 hours, a labourer in a feudal society might work for three days on his or her own land using their own means of production, and for a further three days each week on land belonging to his or her feudal lord (with Sundays and holy days off for rest and regeneration).

Although nominally ‘free’ labourers, they are forced to work for the capitalist by economic necessity just as much as the labourer of feudal society was forced to work for the landlord. It is this type of force that Marx has in mind when he refers to ‘the dull compulsion of economic relations [which] completes the subjection of the labourer to the capitalist’ (1974a, 689 [1976, 899]) and which he argues arises directly from the separation of the labourer from the ownership of the means of reproduction even of their own lives.
The separation of the various parts of the labour process into its constituent parts. However, in so far as manufacturing industry is concerned, Marx argues that these two processes are really just two sides of the same coin, and in fact, Marx actually defines manufacturing as cooperation based on the division of labour (1974a, 343 [1976, 485]). In Chapter 13, Marx looks at various types of simple cooperation which do not involve a sophisticated division of labour; for example, when everyone helps to harvest a crop or dig a canal.
