STOLYPIN RFORM IN THE LIGHT OF THE SOCIO-CULTURAL CODE OF THE RUSSIAN PERSON

Posted in 2017, Issue № 8(62) August 2017, SOCIOLOGY | 0 comments

The article considers the question of the feasibility of the so-called “Stolypin Reform” in a predominantly agrarian Russia at the beginning of the twentieth century. The analysis was carried out from the point of view of the conformity of the agrarian component of the reform (with regard to the transformation of the communal world order into the farm world order) to the socio-cultural code of the Russian peasant. Statistical data on individual peasants who were finally separated from the community and the results of a long-term study of the psychotypes of young people in the USSR, Russia and the USA are compared. The comparison shows that the number of peasant farms allocated for plots of land constitutes the same proportion of the total number of peasant farms as the number of “individualists” according to the results of testing in the USSR and Russia. The conclusion is made that the very principle of reform does not correspond to the socio-cultural code of the Russian peasant.
