Question:

Imagine that you are a middle-level wheat farmer in Russia after collectivisation. You have decided to write a letter to Stalin explaining your objections to collectivisation. What would you write about the conditions of your life? What do you think would be Stalin’s response to such a farmer?

Answer:

Honourable Stalin,

Sir,

I am a middle-level wheat farmer and I grow crops of wheat in my fields. I save some money after doing hard work in the fields for the needs of my family. Now due to your policy of collectivisation I am not able to get profit from my fields. It is my humble request to you to free my land from collectivisation so that I can take care of my family. Thank you.

In my opinion Stalin would not abolish the policy of collectivisation and would ignore his letter.
