ADULT EDUCATION IN CRISIS SITUATIONS Page...

Influence of Revolutions and Political Upheavals 17 international process, and it happened at the same time in a rather short period of several months. Liberal and democratic ideas swept as a spring rainstorm from country to country and could not be stopped by the borders. The political storm was favoured by a rather similar intellectual and political climate in the various countries, from Warsaw to Prague, from Berlin and Budapest to Sofia and Bucharest. This revolution was — in spite of some national variations — a European phenomenon, which weakened chances of the Communist parties in Southern, Western and Northern Europe. In the near future there will not be very great interest in new or old socialist theories of adult education. It may be that newer and better kinds of socialism will be invented and proven, but this is by no means certain. 12. The  soft revolution would not have been possible if the govern­ments of the socialist countries would not have tolerated the political upheaval. It is a question of interpretation, whether the behaviour of the governments was due to a loss of their authority or to a realistic assess­ment of the situation. In former times, governments of authoritarian states suppressed every sign of open opposition and punished the people who acted as the leaders of the incipient revolution as traitors and defeatists. On the whole, the  soft revolution was a victory of intellectual power as an alternative to military force. Such a victory is only possible in nations with a high standard of education and a vital tradition of enlight­enment. Not only in liberal democracies, but also in Marxist countries peoples education, as political education of all citizens, has great impor­tance and efficacy. In countries with a low standard of peoples education such a  soft revolution can hardly be imagined. 13. The  soft revolution would not have occurred, if one great states-man would not have prepared the political climate: Michail Gorbachev. All that he has done up to now is proof of the immense influence which one personality can have even today in spite of the power wielded by great mass organizations or powerful institutions like armies and political parties. A campaign of informing and enlightening the people is an important factor of Gorbachevs strategy of reform, and it may be that this campaign is the first step in a new peoples education. In this strategy the responsibility of all citizens is a necessary ingredient. It is possible that Communist ideology is more successful in political systems with a plurality of parties than in states with only one party, viz. the Communist party. For instance, in France, in Italy and in Yugoslavia, Communist aspects can be found in several types of adult education. We Chapter Home  | TOC
