Question by Mark Good: If Gorbachev wanted to maintain Communism in Russia why did Glasnot and Perestroika cause the opposite?
He invented Glasnot and Perestroika right? He said they were meant to improve Soviet way of life but instead it helped the people realize that they had very few freedom and that American Democracy seemed better. So was he secretly a Capitalist then also? He just makes no sense to me really.
