Looking at how Mikhail Gorbachev's policies changed the Soviet Union, would you consider him a patriot, or in a sense, a subversive?

  • History -

    A patriot is a person who wants what is best for his/her people. Gorbachev realized that the old Soviet Union was not serving the people's needs and desires. He made changes that seemed to reflect the interests of his people. In that sense he was a patriot.

    However, a subversive is a person who works against the established government. Since Gorbachev eschewed the old ways, he could also be considered a subversive.
