I hate the Communist Party chapter 132
What kind of event was the coronation?
The coronation ceremony was where he rightfully inherited a position from his predecessors and was professed in front of gods, nobles and subjects.
This was not a simple event, as one of the reasons why Charles VII, who was on the defensive during the Hundred Years’ War, was attacked by political opponents was that he could not properly hold the coronation.
Although the meaning is now smaller than in the past, if you ask what is the most important event in a society that still maintains the monarchy, nine out of ten still occupied an important position to say that it is a coronation.
“Then it turned out that your Majesty left the preparations for the coronation to the Grand Duke.”
“Considering that you sent the chief of staff at once in the past, you may not know that the Grand Duke is with us, so this is not a sign of your Majesty’s intention to reassure us?”
“That’s it. No matter how gentle Nikki is there, there’s no way he won’t be angry when he sees that kind of arrogant notice. So, don’t be too fussed, just relax and watch their faces full of expectations distort on the day of the coronation.”
However, there were still many nobles who felt anxious despite the rants of Grand Duke Sergei.
It is because Nikolai took the steps that Nikolai had shown so far to be relieved simply with this incident.
This is because it was difficult to think that Nikolai, who had been pursuing a heavy reform policy, including the dissolution of Mir, which is comparable to the Serf Liberation Ordinance, would raise their hands this time.
“But the anti-aircraft decline, will your Majesty really reject their demands and choose to remain the status quo? Honestly, I’m afraid that you’re pushing for a reform that is obviously going to bring social chaos again after reassuring us by letting Hae prepare for the coronation.”
“I take it for granted to have such worries. It is true that Nikki has been running constantly. However, like people and horses, the country cannot be run continuously. Sometimes you need time to pause, take a breath and make sure you’re on the right track. Again, will you accept the requests of those friends and implement additional policies? At that time, not us, but the bureaucracy will stand up first.”
There were other grounds for Archduke Sergey’s affirmation.
This is because, from the time Nikolai took the lead in managing state affairs when he was the crown prince, the sound of a burst of dissatisfaction accumulated by bureaucrats who had been overworked over and over again began to be heard gradually beyond the administration.
High-ranking officials like Vithena Stolipin have been sending unchanging loyalty to the tsar, but low-ranking officials who have improved their treatment but are still receiving less compensation for their work, and officials from aristocrats who are helping to create policies that will work against them. Was different.
In this way, even though Sergei gave the grounds he thought would be different this time, there were still nobles who had anxiety and suspicion among those gathered.
“Then, anti-aircraft degradation, if, very if. What would you like us to do if the Tsar raises their hand despite this?”
Despite his repetitive comments, he may be angry at those who continue to throw doubts, but instead of yelling, Archduke Sergei kept silent for a while and answered quietly.
“If that happens… … At that time, as an imperial adult, why don’t you stop Nikki from taking the country in the wrong direction and help run the state affairs?”
When he finished speaking, the only thing that lingered in the seat was the sound of the candle burning, and the feeling of silence so that even the sound of breath could not be heard.
In the dark, only the eye gleaming with the light reflected from the candle was telling us that it was human beings.

May 25, 1896, was a day of attention not only in the Russian Empire, but also in Europe and around the world.
This is because it was the day that Nikolai, famous for showing unusual appearances from the days of the Crown Prince, was finally officially crowned as a Tsar of the Russian Empire.
Nikolai’s cousin Prince George of England, as well as France, an ally, and the German Empire, which are inconvenient relations, have sent congratulations, and the event shows the status of the Russian Empire enough to send envoys from Japan and Joseon in the far east. Was.
Although there was still no empress to stand with the new emperor during the coronation, few people thought he would not be able to perform as a tsar.
The number of crowds gathered from all over the country to receive distinguished guests from all over the world, free bread and alcohol provided at the banquet to be held after the event, and goods to be shared in commemoration of the emergence of a new emperor after the event was enormous.
“Keep order! Do not push the person in front! There are plenty of bread, alcohol, and goods, so throw away your rush and wait for your turn!”
“Go to the kitchen and ask when new bread comes out. It still looks generous, but when people start to gather, it’ll start out quickly. To keep them from getting in a hurry, you have to keep showing them the bread stacked on the stall.”
“Damn, the people are amazing. I don’t know what would have happened if your Majesty hadn’t told you to prepare the event with at least a million people in mind.”
The crowd gathered to watch the coronation ceremony in Moscow was so great that it was difficult to find other words that matched the qualifier that was enormous.
When he first prepared the event, he prepared the event after assuming that about 200,000 people would come, but if it had been, it would have been a catastrophe.
If the crowds who thought they would not be able to receive their bread and goods started rushing, there could have been a massive crushing.
-What did you just say. 1 million? Preparing for the event, thinking that there will be a crowd of 1 million people at this coronation? Nikki, isn’t that too much? It’s hard to agree easily if you think about the cost of doing so. Of course, I also think that everyone will want to attend your coronation, but it’s a million.
-I understand that my uncle is worried about waste of treasury, but I would appreciate this if you follow my opinion. Because this event is not anyone else’s coronation, it is my coronation. I don’t want people to gossip, saying something bad happened the day I was officially enthroned with the Tsar.
There was a disagreement between Grand Duke Sergei and Nikolai over the size of the event, but Nikolai was the winner.
As he said, this coronation was for his throne.
In the process, thanks to previous agreements with Branovel, some of the enormous amounts of gold accumulated in the Russian central bank were used, but the preparation for the event was smooth.
In order to prevent crowds from crowding, the number of personnel that can enter the square where goods are divided was limited, and control personnel to maintain order not only in Moscow, but also the police and military police in St. Petersburg and other cities. Was mobilized.
The staff under the command of Sergei tried to prevent crowds from crowding at once by making as many routes as possible to the venue, and when promoting the coronation, even if the crowds were crowded, they prepared enough amounts to share them all, so an advertisement saying don’t rush Decorated daily newspapers.
The emperor’s reception for his subjects, expected by the crowds gathered in Moscow, was scheduled for the next day, not on the day of the coronation, but people were waiting for this event to the extent that they had been in Moscow a few days ago.
“Oh God! Protect the Tsar!”
People were so enthusiastic that there was no day when the Russian state filled the streets.
Farmers who have just arrived in the countryside, who do not know anything about complicated politics, rejoiced that the crown prince who helped them survive the last famine without dying from starvation was finally ascended to the emperor. I was complimenting me for the response to the appeals sent by Gemstbo.
The nobles who disagree with them were worrisome about the future, exchanging worrisome words, but they were having a chattering conversation with each other in a place reserved for them, not on the streets.
“I think your Majesty will eventually come out that way. Even though you didn’t hear all the four things the Gemstbo guys asked for, wasn’t it no different that you would finally raise their hands, not us?”
On the day of the coronation, Nikolai, who wore a crown handed over from a priest, expressed his intentions for a petition that had recently been issued—because they feel.
Normally, he was asking for his gratitude for the Lord for granting such glory and for wisdom and instruction to him who would rule the people on his behalf, but he seemed to have decided to wedge this opportunity.
[Recently, I have heard the voices of Gemstbo representatives from various parts of the society asking them to participate in running the state administration. Some may refer to this as ‘fantasy fantasies’, but I am here to make it clear. In a broader sense, they think they make sense. However, there are many things that must be done before this. This is because it is an administrative, financial, and social problem.
So, on June 25, a month later, I would like to convey that I am willing to meet directly with the representatives of Gemstbo who sent me an appeal. This is because I think it is better to filter out the things that are difficult to realize right away through dialogue than to handle it only with your own dogma.]
It could be said that it was a huge step forward from Gemstbo’s point of view, who sent his appeal.
This is because it was the moment when their monarchs did not reject their earnest and polite requests, but accepted them in a limited way.
Conversely, it was a declaration of disappointment and frustration to the nobles.
It was because Nikolai himself expressed consent to their thoughts, even if they did not immediately accept their request.
Grand Duke Sergei, who was in charge of the coronation ceremony, also had a similar idea to the nobles.
For him, even though hundreds of thousands of people had gathered, the fact that the banquet was running smoothly without any problems was no longer important.
My nephew, Nikki, did something similar to a declaration of war on them, because it was the most important thing to focus on at this point.
They were nobles who exchanged whispers mixed with worries and discontent, but when Sergei opened his mouth, everyone stopped talking and looked at him, as if when did it happen.
This is because, if worries and lamentations have been the subject of conversation until now, the story that will come from now must contain a little different content.
“We have a duty to restrain this nation from going in the wrong direction through the rights and mission that has been granted by the Lord. You, including me, have been watching and thinking that the newly enthroned Tsar will come back on its own on the right path, but now someone has to step up and open Nikki’s eyes.”
Empowered by the consent of the nobles, Sergei’s tone became increasingly firm.
“If there are people who share your will with you, including those of you who are gathered here, now you have to act. We can no longer watch the Russian Empire fall. In the noble blood… … .”
“It’s a big deal!”
The Grand Duke’s words could not be concluded.
It was because a nobleman with a horrible face jumped in and opened the door of the place where they were gathered.
The first thing that came to mind in the minds of the nobles who looked at him was whether Ohrana, who could overheard any words and uncover any secrets they thought, noticed this incident in advance and reported it to the Tsar.
No one knew that the chief of staff, who seemed to have nothing to fear in the world, would be thrown into a corner in the Far East.
But contrary to their opinion, the news that interest brought was even more shocking.
“Woah, to England! Uh, it is said that a commune was established in London!”
