Lies, Big Lies, Solidarity

The idea of creating an entirely faked, artificially manufactured movement, is not very original.

The lie of the Solidarity trade union can be summarized as the good Bolsheviks (or Bolsheviki, following the Russian pronounciation) who fought hard and eventually pushed out the bad Bolsheviks. This was naturally a myth created in the communist corridors of power, possibly in Moscow.

The idea may also have come from the communist supporters living in the western democracies.

manufacture: to create (something, such as a false story or explanation) by using your imagination often in order to trick or deceive someone
