Best Answer

government was separated in culture and geographically from the serfs. This caused a threat of revolt as the conditions for serfs to work and live were becoming too dire. There was also a famine meaning that serfs had to give away too much of there produce in the form of tax, circling back round to the fact that there were bad living conditions. You must also take into account the fact that Alexander II had took a 7 month tour of 30 different Russian provenances, meaning we would have seen the conditions they were living in.

What is an abstract noun for serf?

Some people would say slave, but that is not really correct because a slave could be sold, and a serf could not. Also, a slave had to do whatever told, but a serf simply had to fulfill obligatory duties. A villein was very like a serf, except that a villein lived in town, but a serf was agricultural. A cotter was very like a serf, but we really do not have other information on what a cotter was. It is thought that the cotter was technically free to leave the land, but this is speculation.
