When an idea becomes a state ideology, it loses almost all its ideals

“Communist” mother

“So we lived in Radlice, and actually, [I didn’t have a good relationship with my mother - ed.]... Look, I don’t hold it against her, because my father was great. Mum was first and foremost a CPC functionary. You see, the part was something completely different during the First Republic. I don’t exactly know why it is that when an idea becomes a state ideology, it loses almost all of its ideals. And the Communist Party managed that terrifically.”
