Policy authorities and public reaction To understand the essence of the crisis it is important to accurately record exactly how he broke out. The point here is not the case, though the crisis began in the community, forced the authorities to a specific policy - the policy of "perestroika". Vice versa. Power began to carry out a particular policy, confident that the Company will continue to live under its control and to follow the fashion of it. power calculation was erroneous. Society, ripe for the crisis, respond to government policy unexpected and undesired way for her. So looking at the process from a purely sociological point of view, we can say that the crisis was "launched" into the society from above. This is clearly evident in all major activities of power.
