Greedy Kulaks, seeking to enrich themselves through independent gardening rather than paying their fair share for food through their community Collective (Taxed) Market, will be subjected to mandatory confiscation on Thursday after a ruling from the People’s Commission for Produce Redistribution of the city of Orlandograd.
These wreckers are seeking to undermine the Socialist policies of Orlandograd by holding to the Capitalist lie of private property.
All true Socialists know that private property is another means of oppression of the Masses, and this 625 square-foot garden was purposefully designed to threaten the Market Collectives of Orlandograd and deprive the people of their fair share.
After all, these Kulaks made no financial contributions to their local collective for the privilege of private farming, nor were they planning to place their vegetables under the collective’s administration so that they could be properly inspected and labeled.
We are proud that the People’s Commission for Produce Redistribution of the city of Orlandograd, so close to the dormitory of our own beloved Comrade Director, is standing up to these retrograde elements and plans to punish them for their resistance to the People’s Will.
Down with the Kulaks! Forward to Collectivization!
Faithfully submitted to the Collective of the People’s Cube,
Some gardens are Party Approved™... some are not...
Capt. CommieI had an Obama Chia Pet once but I think it was broken. When it sprouted, the plants didn't look like the picture on the box. They looked just like those the Bobby up there is fondling.
What a strange gardening story. Even in the USSR, people were free to grow their own food - for their own table or for sale on the farmers' market. In fact, growing food was even encouraged due to chronic shortages in food supplies by the government.
However, if I recall correctly, part of Khrushchev's post-Stalin liberalization in the early 1960s was a decree that allowed collective farmers to have small patches of land where they could grow food for personal use or for sale. Before that, apparently, no food could be grown outside of the state-supervised collective farm. Even Communist hard-liners came to realize the folly of that idea.
These days Pravda - the real Pravda, not the USSA publications I've been calling "Pravda" for 20 years - warns the USA about things like letting the government take our guns, communism not being viable ("been there, done that"), and so on.
