I hate the Communist Party chapter 66
“… … In this way, reform is currently underway.”
“The situation is doing better than we expected. Fortunately, the.”
The two-month report on the situation after the rural reform through the mouth of Bite contained the content that the work was proceeding more smoothly than expected.
“Ohrana’s Director Plebe is doing better than I thought. It is said that it is thanks to his pre-arrest work that there is no major uprising. In addition, in rural areas recently, even the word ohrana is said to be afraid to speak in their mouths. It is said that farmers believe that when they say anything that relates or refers to the secret police, they immediately look at them through their invisible eyes.”
Due to the nature of the Russian Empire, where the illiteracy rate is almost 80%, peasants are often dazzled or scared by magical elements despite their belief in the Orthodox Church.
In normal times, this social atmosphere would only be seen as an obstacle to the development of Russia, but in the current situation, it was a laughable help in controlling the farmers.
“I don’t know how to react to the rumors that the Crown Prince has the ability to see Moscow from St. Petersburg. I don’t know if I’m even telling me that I signed a contract with the devil.”
As the notoriety for Ohrana’s prestige got higher, the image of the farmers about me was getting weirder day by day.
Of course, at the end of the description of the prince, the modifier was added, ‘A Merciful Majesty who always thinks of the subjects’.
“If the chief of staff was here, I wouldn’t like it very much.”
“If he were, he would have run out, saying that he should lead those ungodly people on the right path.”
Povedonoschev, who had been a taboo within the Imperial Palace after being relegated, had a good image enough to be used to make light jokes thanks to the appearance and ability he showed so far.
Since the announcement of this reform, there have been riots in the Far East as well, but through the position of chief of staff and the speech skills that have been practiced so far, they quickly calmed down and showed a high degree of understanding of the strategy of intervention on the Korean peninsula using the Korean-Russians mentioned earlier Was giving.
‘Even so, it is a burdensome greeting to bring them back here.’
When I thought of the conservative nobles who were still unable to find their center after the chief of staff went to the Far East, I was sorry to Master, but I felt like I had to stay there.
Fortunately, Povedonoschev first revealed that he had no intention of returning to St.Petersburg in the future and relieved my burden, but I couldn’t help but feel sorry in the corner of my heart.
“Fortunately, we have to remember that even though we have encountered less backlash than expected in implementing the reform, it is not yet a step of reassurance. If this year’s harvest does not meet farmers’ expectations right now, I think everyone knows how collaborative farmers will change now. The first gateway to this reform is what will happen this year, so please pay special attention.”
The next half year, or six months, was the time to determine whether the order of dismantling Mir would successfully settle.
Except for a small number of farmers from agricultural schools or those who are educated, the farmers who believe in and follow us were sending support with the idea that if they follow the government’s words, they can eat more full.
This was a result of the anticipation arising from the support measures for the famine that had been made since last year.
Thanks to that, I was able to receive less resistance than I expected, but in other words, I had to prepare for a post-storm in case my expectations could not be met.
“First, we have to go step by step from the easy ones. Things like the introduction of iron farming tools and the supply of compost through nitrates could start right away, but what I’m worried about… … .”
“A problem like the introduction of a thresher and a harvester should be approached carefully. The immediate introduction of both would increase the yield of this year to some extent right now, but it would deprive the poor of the opportunity to glean and complain about rural workers who lost their jobs at harvest time. I will.”
As I talked about my worries, Bite replied as if he knew what I was worried about.
Indeed, the words that came out of his mouth were also what was discussed at the time of the establishment of the agricultural reform plan.
It is good to dismantle Mir and redistribute the farmland, but that does not create farmland without it.
By cultivating self-employed farmers and encouraging the pioneering of barren land, there were inevitably some people who were allocated only enough land to sustain their livelihoods unless the absolute area of the agricultural land was increased.
And for such people, earning wages by helping those who are in short supply during the harvest season was not simply an act of earning additional income, but a problem directly related to their own livelihood.
“That’s right, Finance Minister. That’s the second gateway to our policies. It will probably take at least 5 years to solve this problem. And the only solution to this would be to foster self-employed farmers. But as soon as the majority of farmers become self-employed farmers with a strong foundation, the Russian economy will also take off.”
Because the increase in self-employed farmers was the same as the increase in consumers who could afford to buy goods.
At least, he was hoping that he would be able to increase the motivation of farmers just by getting out of the situation that he had to redistribute the land he was farming to others in a few years.
However, despite this problem, I was somewhat confident.
The worrisome conflict in the Far East ended with unfavorable consequences for Russia, and the Great Game against Britain in Central Asia was on the verge of an end.
Moreover, negotiations on forming an alliance with France were also in the final stage, and it was expected that there would be no foreign conflict for the time being, unless Ottoman suddenly went crazy and raged.
‘The only concern is the terrorist forces that populists or extreme nationalists may be fighting while all the police are concentrated in rural areas.’
I wasn’t God, so I couldn’t solve all the problems at once, so I said, thinking that I should pay attention to security for the time being.
“Another good thing is that Pogrom didn’t happen that much.”
Whenever society became confused, the number of occurrences of pogrom naturally occurred was small enough to be counted with one hand, and the scale was about attacks such as breaking a window against some Jewish stores or violence against individuals. Fortunately, no major attacks on the area occurred.
At first glance, I could have said that the speeches I gave back in the past worked, but I thought differently.
‘It’s because I didn’t do the behind-the-scenes work that turned internal discontent to Jews. It doesn’t make sense to dismiss anti-Semitism that has been deeply rooted for hundreds of years with just one or two speeches.’
It was expected that it would take at least two generations to make anti-Semitism disappear in Russia.
If this racism had disappeared because the ruler told me not to do it, there would have been no war crimes or hate crimes in the world.
“Broncitein-kun must be happy. Isn’t that one of the people who most impressed with your Majesty’s speech.”
When I listened to Bite, I had to pick and laugh. Broncitane?
“You have improved your joke skills a lot while the Finance Minister hasn’t seen it. You mean that guy?”
“I joked once.”
Since the last quarrel, Broncitein and Zugashvili have been attracting enough attention to the members of the Ministerial Council.
They were the two most prominent in the ongoing educational program, and there were talks about me showing particular interest.
Apart from this, it was a high-batting joke to say that a guy with a faint perception of himself as a Jew would be pleased that the same people did not suffer because Pogrom did not occur very much.
‘The most likely thing is that the people affected by statism may be pleased with the illusion that they showed a more mature attitude.’
“By the way, is the work related to currency reform going well?”
I decided to turn the story. One of the goals of Russia’s fiercely collecting gold and the determinant of that time, the currency reform to the gold standard was to be implemented soon.
It was also a longing that has been around for decades. Even in the original history, Russia has always collected gold to strengthen its exchange rate, and in 1894 it even stood tall as the world’s largest gold-owner.
That position lasted until 1914, but unfortunately, the country with the largest gold reserves in the world was also the weakest country in Europe.
‘It is also more regrettable that the collapse of the Russian Federation was in that they could not properly utilize what they had. Although it is said that it was the result of Nikolai’s own incompetence.’
Fortunately, thanks to the help of our eternal friends, Japan and the Qing Dynasty, we were able to collect livestock that could implement currency reform earlier than planned.
Vishnetgraski was in charge of the plan, and a competent finance official, he seemed to pour out all the experience and skills he had so far.
“To date, the monetary reform is in progress, Your Majesty. Under the current plan, 5 rubles and 10 rubles Cerbonets, 7.5 rubles Polu Imperial, and 15 rubles imperial gold coins will be issued. Will have value. In addition, it is possible to issue an unlimited number of newly issued banknotes, but we plan to leave at least half of the total amount of the issued banknotes in gold reserves to guarantee payment.”
The currency reform implemented this time was expected to proceed in a manner similar to that of the original history.
The introduction of the gold standard was not decided on an improvised basis, but came after decades of preparation.
“Okay, but as the aftermath of the famine has not yet disappeared across the economy, I think it will take a little more time to get it started.”
The economy ruined by common jokes is said to be a Russian tradition, but from now on it was expected to change.
The potential of a large territory and a large population could not be ignored by anyone.
Since the last meeting with the conglomerates, Russia’s industrial power has been slightly but clearly rising.
The right to deliver to the million-unit army was enough to make anyone drool, and they were competitively buying production machinery and inviting engineers.
Of course, despite their efforts, it still took a long time for specific results to appear, but the difference between not even starting and taking steps will become enormous as the years go by.
Although the risk factors remained in some places, hopes rose that this year will be a year where we can focus only on internal affairs without any issues.
But usually what happens when you think of this… … .
Wouldn’t this be a double track?
Copeika¹: Russian currency unit. You can think of it as a relationship between dollars and cents.
