Agriculture and the Revolution: From the RCP Draft Programme

"Upon coming to power, the proletariat will promote the development of a rational agriculture that provides ample, healthful, and secure food supplies; that encourages environmentally and biologically sound farming practices; and that provides security of livelihood for those engaged in agricultural production....

"Private ownership of parcels of land, and of the means of production needed to farm the land, is an obstacle to utilizing land and developing agriculture in a way that benefits society as a whole. A key means through which the proletariat in power will transform this situation and create the basis for the rational and all-sided development of agriculture is nationalization of land : making land the property of society through state ownership."
