A few regrets

Gorbachev wishes he had squashed the political reforms that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union. He said that "separatists should have been hit" with "criminal responsibility."

"Criminal responsibility"? Ah, yes. That would be the Gulag.

He's no saint. Despite all the popularity he got for presiding over the downfall of the most tyrannical regime the world had ever seen, he wasn't trying to free anybody. He was trying to save the Soviet system from the perils of freedom and capitalism. He was just bad at it; an evildoer who failed to succeed.
