Mikhail Gorbachev has just been elected general secretary of the Communist Party, the Soviet Union.
To make our country better, we need the country to be led by glasnost and perestroika!
Gorbachev's plan of glasnost, free speech, didn't go the way he planned it to.
Yeah, we now need to criticize the government for what they've done wrong!
Hey, we now have the freedom of speech!
Another thing was that the Communist Party tried to industrialize as much as possible leaving the Communist Party wealthy, while many Soviet citizens starved due to food shortages.
Soon, the citizens of the Soviet Union led a coup against the government, which failed but let Gorbachev know that he was losing control of leadership in the Soviet Union.
All these things that Gorbachev set up helped with the collapse of the U.S.S.R.
Everything, my plans, and reforms have all gone wrong!
This was the beginning of when the Soviet Union started to dissolve.
