The failures of the wars Russia took part in damaged their economy even more than it already was. The extreme poverty of the Russian people and the overpopulation of the major cities making living condition dreadful. These factors put struggles on the Russian people and it made them very anger at the government. The Tsar, Nicholas II failures to lead the country properly and the consent bad decisions that was made caused outrage with the Russian people. All of these factors are the reason why the Russian Revolution in February 1917
In 1918, some of the spartacists formed the German Communist Party (Spartacists). The Germans were afraid of Communism and the Red Plague which was death by government. The USSR was communist and they had the Red Plague, which was probably why Germany was afraid of communism. In January 1919, the communists rebelled in Berlin, so Ebert allowed the Freikorps to bring stability back (Spartacists). Most of the the Spartacists were civilians, and most of the Freikorps had a
They killed lots of people, and he just ruled his country by force. He not care about people feeling. He did not care about election that was happen each four years in each country around the world. He just stayed by force. Then in 2011, his people made a big revolution against all his behaviors, and they killed him.
The underlying cause was the backward economic condition of the country, which made it unable to sustain the war effort against powerful, industrialized Germany”(1917). After Russia was represented by a provisional government three major factors that had an immense impact on the government were the Petrograd Soviet, the government’s extension on the war, and the Bolsheviks gaining power. One significant group that weakened/overtook the Provisional Government was the other half of Russia, the Petrograd Soviet. After Tsar’s government disintegrated
This happened in the 1930’s in the Soviet Union. By examining the life of Joseph Stalin, the number of executions of political prisoners, and the aftermath of the genocide, it is clear that Stalin’s genocide was one of the worst things to happen in the world. The perpetrator was Joseph Stalin. He was the dictator of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, also known as the USSR. Stalin was not like other dictators.
The people were afraid of being sent to a labor camp so they did not retaliate or try to fight back against Stalin. Life in the gulags were terrible. People worked up to 14 hours per day, cut down trees with handsaws, dug at the frozen ground with pickaxes, and mined coal. Mining coal led to lung diseases with could lead to death. Women in the gulags were raped and abused.
One such poor decision that would, in due course, result in revolution, was to retain an autocratic regime in Russia. At the time, Russia was, in fact, one of the few remaining autocracies in the world, which only demonstrated the country’s failure to reform and move with the times. Democracy was becoming more apparent in other countries throughout the world, but Russia’s autocratic regime “granted the population no voice in government and strictly punished any expressions against the status quo” (Pipes, 18). The result of continued autocratic rule was contempt for the Tsar and Russian monarchy. Suppression and failure to reform particularly frustrated the liberal intelligentsia.
Embedded in Russia’s fecund history was The Bolshevik revolution which unraveled between 1917 and 1928. The revolution bore a plethora of social and political changes, which lead to the emergence of the Soviet Union. An individual of immense Significance during this period of social and governmental turbulence was Leon Trotsky whose ideologies and leadership were pivotal factors in the successful fortification of communism in Soviet Russia during 1917 to 1928. I will be keenly and succinctly assessing the contribution of Leon Trotsky to the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution and arrive at a measured conclusion whether his contributions were significant or extraneous. Leon Trotsky was a man of vast erudition and possessed keen leadership and organizational skills which greatly aided the accession of the Soviet Union.
King Louis The 16th had ignored his people and refused to give them power when they wanted it. The let them fall into famine and kept on raising the taxes when people were dying on the streets. So as we know, the people fought back. Like I said the people became violent and wanted the King and queen dead. “The king must die so that the country can live.”-Maximilien Robespierre There were the September massacres where approximately 1200 prisoners were killed.
This led to a civil war and killed many of the Russians that were in it. So yeah, was it a positive change? No, for most people life went back to normal, still working in factories and getting low wages. In addition, the Soviet leaders such as Stalin were worse than most of the Russians tsars. The idea of rebellion is good enough, but a lot of the time, it ends in a situation that no one is happy with like anarchy or provisional
