  •  We're discussing (none)
    political liberalization, not the governing under that liberalization.

    I suggest you read an archive and find out where it was that Gorbachev liberalized politics in the Soviet Union and whether he had any say in it at all.

    I suggest you get off your high horse and relieve yourself of the notion that you are the only person who has read a book.

    •  Gorbachev (none)
      at the June 1988 19th Party Conference and the December 1988 meetings of the Supreme Soviet pushed through the creation of a Congress of People's Deputies that was elected in March 1989.  While 1/3 of seats were chosen by institutions of civil society (including the CPSU), 2/3 were elected in full, open, secret, universal suffrage.

      I suggest you get a clue about what you're talking about.
