ADULT EDUCATION IN CRISIS SITUATIONS Page...

Influence of Revolutions and Political Upheavals 13 of this revolution popular even to people of the lower classes. The  electronic revolution has introduced a lot of new techniques and meth­ods into the practice of adult learning. All thinking people in the world remember the most terrible of all intellectual revolutions in the 20th century, the  cultural revolution in Red China, during which the existing culture was attacked by young, and not by adult, people; a new culture and education, promised by the young revolutionaries, did not materialize.  The beginning of revolutions has often been a  turning upside down 4 with  a destruction of the traditional order, but it can be also  a fundamental  reconstruction, which combines new values with old. 5  As an example we can mention the  re- education of the West German population after 1945 by British and American oc­cupation authorities. One of the most important institutions that provided the ideological base for the new democratic adult education in West Germany, was the  German Educational Reconstruction ( GER), founded by emigrant German experts of adult education in the last years of the war in England. In historical retrospective, it is questionable whether the  re-education was more in the nature of a revolution or an evolution, that fostered new connections to the democratic German adult education of the twenties. It is an old story that revolution is more a matter for young people than older persons. In the pedagogical literature an expression like  revolution of youth education can be encountered, but references to a  revolution of adult education are very unusual. THE  SOFT REVOLUTION IN CENTRAL AND EASTERN EUROPE — 1989 — AS AN ANDRAGOGICAL PHENOMENON Though the process of political change in Central and Eastern Europe has not yet come to an end, it is possible to analyze aspects of it. In view of the authoritarian structure and the military power of Marxist countries, nobody could have dared some years ago to predict that countries like Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria or GDR would lose their Marxist character by the end of the year 1989. Military power seemed to be an absolute guarantee for stability, and Erich Honnecker, the president 4 The Concise  Oxford Dictionary, 3 ed., Oxford, 1949, p. 1008. 5 Ibid.   Chapter Home  | TOC t t
