Failures

Economy

Society

Collectivization (1929), Increase in factory workers, decrease in peasants = less food, Facade for Stalin's seizing of absolute power, Great Terror, A ton of farm animals were killed off (about 50%), in retaliation, the soldiers shot anybody who resisted collectivization; and then people starved because they didn't have food, 25 million peasant farms were combined into 240,000 collective farms, wealthier peasants resented becoming unpaid workers
