Hello! If someone could provide some feedback on my Modern History introduction that would be awesome. Thanks heaps!

Assess the significance of the New Economic Policy to the Bolshevik consolidation of power.

Vladimir Lenin’s New Economic Policy, NEP (1921-1928), was a partially significant factor to the Bolshevik consolidation of power, ameliorating the Russian economy to a small extent through increased agricultural output though minimal urban output; however, where the NEP’s practical application was viewed by some Bolshevik’s as too capitalist, thereby distracting from the Bolshevik’s objective of an entirely socialist state, this saw the advancing Cheka Police and Red Army from the Civil War, which were highly significant in the Bolshevik consolidation of power, creating terror amongst the Soviet population. Thus, while the New Economic Policy was partially significant to the Bolshevik consolidation of power, its practical application alluding to capitalism supposedly distracted from the Bolshevik’s ideological objectives, whereby the Cheka Police and Red Army were utilized as elements of terror to consolidate the Bolshevik’s power further.
