7. My Opinion

I feel that it was unfair that the serfs, or peasants, got almost none of the food they harvested. I feel like they should've been treated at least like the middle class, or lower class. I also feel that the serfs were needed, because there was no one else to do work, and farm. I just feel that they should've had better conditions, and been treated better.
