Just like the dinosaurs, "the soviet space" has disappeared. Was the disintegration of the USSR programmed into the experiment? Everything depends on the theoretic methods used to examine this phenomenon. Contrary to a strict theory of the history of events, a complex and systematic sociological theory reveals an impasse that was written, from the very beginning, into the socialist project. If one uses a theory of modern society based on the concept of functional differentiation, the analysis of the soviet experiment is no longer limited to a system of opposites (capitalism vs. socialism). On the contrary, it must respond to the question of how the regional political soviet systems accomplished their totalitarian ambitions, using modern means while at the same time opposing modernity. The singularities of the socialist experiment are manifested in the inflationist recourse to organisation, in the considerable communication restrictions and the social de-differentiations (the politicising of all the social domains), which are the origin of the socialist modernisation dilemma and the inherent blindness to information management. These are the disastrous effects of a system whose resistance to modernisation drives it, by roundabout means of reform under Gorbatchev, to its own dissolution.
