After the break down of Stalinist structures in Eastern Europe, the left wing may get under the ruins. The revival of conservative traditions, the absolutisation of the messianism of small nations, private property, reprivatization etc. obstructs political democratisation developing into economic democracy. The world economic conditions are unfavourable. Perestroika's contradictory effects. There are time bombs ticking under the new systems: unemployment, poverty, nationalistic conflicts etc.
