    Gorbachevism was the ideology of the final leader of Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev. Under his leadership, the Soviet Union saw its demise with the introduction of liberal reforms swaying towards Market Socialism and Democratic Socialism.

    Gorbachevism differs from Khrushchevism as it seeked the destruction of Stalinism in Russia while Gorbachevism seeked on the deconstruction of the Eastern Bloc, Marxism-Leninism and the one-party state.

    Gorbachevism implemented a set of reforms:

    • Decentralized planning
    • Workplace democracy
    • Legalization of privately-owned small businesses
    • Political freedom and freedom of speech
    • Legalization of western media (to some extent)
    • Trade agreements with Coca Cola, Mcdonald's and Pizza Hut
    • Free elections

    While leading to certain freedoms for average people, such as promoting freedom of speech and reducing repression against political dissidents, the culmination of these reforms made out of desperation to save the soviet system introduced a high degree of economic and political turmoil and the means for mass destitution under Yeltsinism in Russia, though this could be argued to have mainly been the cause of stagnation from previous leaders of the USSR such as Brezhnev, Gorbachev's desperate struggle for reforming the soviet system had led to great amounts of mass-privatization in the rest of the ex-socialist world, and economic isolation or massive restoration of market relations in the few socialist nations that persisted.
