Ronald Reagan: "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall" (1987)

In the Communist world, we see failure, technological backwardness, declining standards. . . . Even today, the Soviet Union cannot feed itself... Freedom is the victor... General Secretary Gorbachev . . . come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.

~ President Ronald Reagan, speech at the Brandenburg Gate in West Berlin, 1987
