Was Mikhail Gorbachev Russia's Last Great Hope For Democracy?

Thom Hartmann explains the real history of the Soviet Union's last leader, mikhail gorbachev, and what Russia could have been without neoliberalism. Mikhail Gorbachev died at 91. the last leader of the Soviet Union had hoped to turn Russia into a Democratic Socialist country similar to Sweden and he almost succeeded until George H.W. Bush turned Russia's dreams for Democracy into a neoliberal living Nightmare, eventually leading to Putin taking power.
