Some Explanations About the Fall of ‘Real Socialism’

Why did ‘real socialism’ and, in particular the Soviet Union, fall? Let me note a few explanations that have been offered. With respect to the Soviet Union, one very interesting explanation that has been suggested is that it’s all the fault of Mikhail Gorbachev. And not simply the errors of Gorbachev but the treachery. Those who offer this explanation rely in particular upon a document which is sometimes described as his confession. This document begins as follows:

Current crisis as a test for a multi polar world By Alexey Pilko

15 March, 2012 — Voice of Russia

The idea of the unipolarity is still on the table, but it is becoming more and more blurred. The relations between governments, nation states are becoming more complicated and multi-polar.

To prove the statement above, it is enough to recall the NATO aggression against Yugoslavia in 1999. It was a typical situation, with an ethnic conflict breaking out that led to the formation of a separatist enclave on the territory of a sovereign state. Continue reading
