I hate the Communist Party chapter 145
[… … This is what the French side has presented to us. I had about 10 days to understand your Majesty’s intentions, so I would be enjoying Vienna’s chocolate cake while still filling up the seats until an order was issued from my home country.]
The Foreign Minister Ger was brilliantly carrying out my mission.
At this empty meeting, it wasn’t an exaggeration to say that we had nothing to gain, because it was faithfully keeping the words to try to understand the situation without moving quickly.
‘First of all, France is the same, and next is England?’
It wasn’t only France and Germany that were hot after the empty conference turned into a place to solve African problems. Like the British, the British also had a big step in Africa.
Yes, it was.
In the process of suppressing the last London commune, I first borrowed the power of the Russian army, but since then I knew how the public sentiment would react when crossing the British mainland with the Russian army, no matter how much my influence George had.
Therefore, the card he brought was to bring the troops dispatched to the colonies all over the world back to the mainland.
Originally, after the departure of the 20,000 advance troops, a similar dispatch of troops was scheduled to take place once more, but that is why the rest of the troops remained in Russia.
However, it was his misfortune that it didn’t go as smoothly as George thought.
‘There was no way that the command to split and send the troops that seemed to go down to the governors who were in a position to crush the colonists who heard the news that the British mainland was shaken without support from their own country could not be properly fulfilled.’
At the time when the atmosphere was the worst, it was said that the governor of India, who can be said to be the most influential of the governors, was vetoed and divided even the mainland and the colony. When I think about the bet on whether it would declare independence, I could guess the atmosphere at the time.
Fortunately, the Governor-General of India repatriated the troops at the end, and the troops from other regions who had noticed since he sent troops returned one after another to help them back home, so George was still able to protect Buckingham Palace.
Now that the problems related to the coal mines and Ireland in the west and the north have been solved, which had not left the string of rebellion until the end, even if George ascended to the throne, few people would argue against it.
There was a lot of talk and a lot of masks, but it seemed clear that he had revived the embers of the British Empire in a crisis where the country of England could be shattered.
Was that so? The tone of the letter he sent to me was gradually taking shape as a leader of a country, not a tone that depended on me.
‘So after this empty meeting, I will hold a ceremony in London, so I hope I can attend… … .’
Unlike France’s attitude to present their demands and wait for an answer, Britain was a little more cautious.
No matter how much the British stabilized the mainland based on colonial troops, the 20,000 Russian troops stationed in London could not be easily ignored.
There was a reputation for defeating Napoleon’s guards-the United Kingdom, which was smashed by the American militia in the Independence War, and was undervalued by the current situation, but the British possessed only the colonial garrison, which could be called the second class force, not the red coat. Even more so for the government.
‘Probably, in a dialogue that will take place during the ceremony to commemorate the recapture of England including London, we will talk about the withdrawal of the Russian troops stationed in London and how to reset the relationship between the two countries in the future. Still, the British guys seem to have lowered their noses a lot because of this. If it were normal, I would have sent a message warning that it would be no fun if at least one Russian soldier remained in London after this time.’
In addition, the British side has also expressed its intention that it would be nice to think about their position once more in this African issue.
It was because some of the regions where France and Germany were in conflict were originally managed by the British side.
It was the result of French and German reaching out for fear that some of the regions that forcefully sent some of the garrisoned troops to their home countries could not suppress the unrest and passed on to the local people.
The colonists, who maintained their independence for a short time, were once again under the shadow of the imperialist powers.
In fact, if you asked me as a modern man, I would have told you that all that is happening is an old-world artifact that should disappear.
It would have felt that there were Britain asking for help to regain the area they were originally colonized, or France, who wished to help them swallow the area that had escaped from the grip of Britain.
The fate of Africa is that the Africans living there, not the Europeans, have to decide. This was also a natural story.
But for me now, Africa was not a question of morality and conscience, but rather a place that made me think about how to get potential competitors to waste energy there to take up even more land.
Considering that our Russian Empire does not have the colonies it deserves in Africa, the Black Continent was the best place to take advantage of one step away.
“Your Majesty, I’m sorry, can I go in for a while?”
What made this continuation of my thoughts stop for a moment was Bite’s visit, which brought predictions related to this year’s yield that I was told to report.
“Yes, how much did you say the agricultural yields will be hit this year?”
“As a result of a joint study conducted by the Agricultural Academy and the Soil Research Institute, it is expected that the yield is expected to decrease by 10% compared to last year. However, it is said that this is only an estimate and may vary depending on various variables. Fortunately, thanks to agricultural reforms that were made a few years ago, the famine that swept Russia from 1891 to 1892 was unlikely to occur.”
“That’s fortunate. Our bureaucrats will still have the experience of moving against the famine last time, so I think they can cope well enough. Relaunch the Famine Countermeasures Committee, reduce hunger deaths to a minimum, and recalculate how much tax should be collected this year for reduced agricultural production. And pay special attention so that infectious diseases, including waterborne diseases, do not circulate during a famine.”
Again this year, a climate that will bring a famine has arrived in Russia.
For Russia, which is loved by the sky on the bad side, it was a famine like an event that came every other year, but insufficient infrastructure and actions that could not be called good turned the famine into a disaster each time.
‘Although the story will be different this time.’
The agricultural reforms represented by the dismantling of Mir and the improvement of cultivation laws, and the manual coping with the famine that had been commanded by the Crown Prince in 81, made Russia no longer a country with famine as a special product.
Of course, the background of the pre-modern era and the road network that is still inadequate, and the limitations of the country too wide, could not save everyone, but as in the past, I was confident that tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands would not die.
“If there is one concern, the problem is that we cannot simultaneously distribute support items across the country with our current capabilities. No matter how much time lags in all regions, even if they say that support will be provided, complaints will inevitably accumulate among residents who are told that their ranking has been pushed back. Even if the people have basic trust in the way the government showed in the last famine, the farmers who saw the signs of a famine would not be able to respond rationally.”
“It makes sense.”
Bite’s concern had good reason. Because I knew better than anyone that people don’t always act rationally.
‘Hmm. No matter how much countermeasures are in place, there is a way to reassure the people who feel uneasy in the provinces due to a famine… … Ah! Then it turns out he was there!’
It was clear that the support would not be provided at the same time due to the wide land area, so it seemed that there was no way to alleviate the anxiety and dissatisfaction that the people would feel in the next-ranked area.
However, it was expected that the person who came to mind soon could solve this problem at once.
“If you are concerned that people may have bad thoughts and hearts, why don’t someone who is famous for loving them more than anyone else comfort them? Isn’t my uncle, who loves the most common people in the Russian Empire, traveling around the country?”
“Yes? Yes that’s right. I know that Grand Duke Sergei is currently encouraging the workers who are building railroads in Siberia.”
“Finally good. In the famine relief committee that will be in operation again this time, make sure to create a new position with an appropriate name for your uncle. There is no real power, but the name is grandiose, you know what I mean?”
Bite replied with a bitter smile when he was kicked out of the capital for rebellion against his nephew-although nominally a voluntary foreign country-when he opened up his intention to use his uncle, who will be traveling through the vast lands of Russia today.
“Duke Sergei will be pleased. The Russian newspapers will once again praise me. “A saint who came down from a noble and high position and knows only the subjects who came to the lowest place” would be good as the title of the article on the first page.”
However, from the fact that he was naturally talking about his plans to use this job as propaganda, he apparently had a much worse personality than me.
Uh, I happened to have such a scary person as my closest friend.
“Then, is this all you have to report?”
“If you are talking about the agricultural related information that your Majesty was talking about, yes. Anything else will be reported by Stolipin, not me.”
“Okay, then I’ve done a good job to go out.”
Originally, this conversation would have ended the story that felt eerie to someone with a tender heart like me.
Unless it wasn’t for Stolipin, who quickly opened the door before Bite even left.
“sire! Excuse me, but because it was urgent news, I committed this rudeness. It is said that two days ago, a small conflict between France and Germany occurred in Africa. The death toll is less than 10 on both sides, but it is said that the atmosphere in the two countries where the news was delivered is not very serious.”
Somehow, this world seemed to go faster than I expected, on a road that no one had ever had and had never experienced.
