After the war had finished, he educated his citizens and then sent them out to different countries so they could prosper elsewhere. Also Lenin did not put as many people as Stalin into concentration camps. When Stalin came into power, the number of people that were in concentration camps increased dramatically. For these reasons I believe Lenin ruled over Russia in a more effective way. Lenin was considered a hero for his people.
Fields were abandoned and crops were not harvested. The lords that owned these dying lands were desperate for work. Taking advantage of the situation, peasants began to demand for money for their labor. For the first time, peasants were making working conditions and they were working for themselves. The higher social classes did not have as much control over the lower classes.
The revolution could not be contained by the government, and therefore it grew in size. The success of the revolution was determined when the soldiers ceased to fire on the demonstrators. Many riots prior to the revolution sparked the workers to protest against more than just food rations. After the riots, the February Revolution started and did not last very long, but it paved the way for new powers to come into leadership. Powers, like the Bolsheviks, would make an impact on not only Russia, but also neighboring countries.
Watching the USSR’s gradual climb to power, the U.S. found it important as the police of the world to keep the USSR in check. Through this paper, I will talk about how the ignorance of the governments led to the conflict between the superpowers. Stalin’s use of repression in the early 1950’s to quickly accelerate the development of the USSR showed the world success could be achieved without a miraculous economic boom the U.S. had. This success was adored by many third world countries and former imperial countries as they believed that they could do something similar in order to increase their own prosperity. What they did not realize was the amount of
The townspeople are suffering greatly due to the lack of food resulting in many deaths and that is what made them contribute to the revolution. Many people in Russia such as soldiers and townspeople are anguished with how there is simply not enough supplies to support themselves resulting in hardship and
France was severely in debt at that time, banks couldn’t give people who needed money because they didn’t have any to give, even with the high taxes. With the Privileged Estates system, the rich who could afford to pay the taxes didn’t
The R.S.D.L.P defined the political needs of the proletariat as, “freedom of association, strikes, assembly, speech, and publication, and the inviolability of the individual.” The Party recognized the economic disadvantages of the proletariat and used their frustrations with the Tsar to compel their allegiance. The proletariat, with only decades of freedom behind them, eagerly accepted the guidance of the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party. The future of Russia, as portrayed by the R.S.D.L.P., was a perfect society where everyone was equal and economic hardships were nonexistent. Having recently experienced the end of centuries serfdom, the proletariat believed radical change was possible. Their allegiance to the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party was
This is because they do not give one person or group of people absolute power. For example, the United States has a president, but the government has a series of checks and balances so no one part gets more power. Historically, powerful and long lasting countries survive because they do not rely on one leader and share the power within their country. One man or woman cannot be trusted with absolute power, rather, a successful government should be a power sharing one with checks and balances as not to promote power
The lower class had to deal with horrifying living standards and food shortages due to famine and World War 1. While rural agricultural peasants had been liberated from serfdom in 1861, they still resented paying redemption payments to the state and demanded communal tender of the land they worked. Increasing peasant troubles and sometimes full revolt occurred, with the goal of securing ownership of their land. Russia consisted mainly of poor farming peasants, with 1.5% of the population owning 25% of the land (
