The Russian Revolution of 1905 was caused by an inevitable confluence of the obsolete Russian feudal system and the majority of their modern populace who revolted because of long term issues like incompetent czars and the dilapidated social structure along with immediate causes like the Bloody Sunday massacre and the Russo-Japanese war Firstly Russias archaic political system social infrastructure and somewhat ailing line of czars made living conditions abysmal for the common citizen and revolution the only viable solution Russias feudalist political system had been perpetuated for more than three centuries and as other European countries such as Great Britain flourished through their industrial revolutions Russia was still largely agricultural uneducated and dependent upon a primal agricultural industry Some 90 of the Russia people were non-landlords and those who made up the noble class were even fewer in number Yet these noblemen and landlords held all of the right to political power determination and the best parts of the land The common people were seen as superstitious and ignorant serfs who only understood force and brutal oppression Though Czar Alexander the II 1855-1881 attempted at reform as seen in his Emancipation Edict of March 3 1861 which abolished serfdom and guaranteed the right to own land the liberty of the peasants was still out of reach The autocratic bureaucracys Edict only entitled 13 of the total area of agricultural land to be given to the village communities while more than 13 was kept by the state and the Imperial family was still kept by the nobles The annual sums of the government to be paid in exchange for ownership of the land were oftentimes greater than the dues that the peasants had formerly paid to the serfs Furthermore the land of the village communities designated to the people was most likely infertile because the nobles were allowed to only give the worst parts of their estates to the people and the village communities
