You write ‘Poland’s emergence from political suffocation was a triumph of collective will and “Solidarity”’.
“Solidarity” was a Communist provocation and a fake opposition. Rather than repeating absurd fairy tales, it would be better to engage in a little bit of critical thinking.
Communism has not collapsed in Poland. Yes, there was restructuring, a perestroika, but the organisation, the cadres, the methods are all in place and fully operational. This was the goal: to create an impression of the collapse of Communism and to continue under the facade of capitalism. A smarter way to run a dictatorship.
