Michail  Gorbatschow - What Is at Stake Now


Mikhail Gorbachev on the dangerous disorder of the world

Thirty years after the end of the conflict between East and West, world peace is again at risk. The President of the United States has withdrawn from the disarmament treaty with Russia, Europe is disintegrating, China is surging forward, and a wave of nationalism and ideologies is endangering the freedom and self-determination of the peoples of the world.

In view of the dangerous situation throughout the world, Mikhail Gorbachev, the last great statesman of the 1989 revolution, warns of a war of all against all. He describes the inability of today's political leaders and their unwillingness to work at international solutions. He focusses on the big challenges of our time, such as the crisis in democracy and the rise of populists and ideologists and pins his hopes on dialog and rapprochement.
