“This accounts for the feature which immediately strikes the eye in Kundera’s novels: the depoliticized private sphere is in no way the free domain of innocent pleasures.” – There is always something damp, claustrophobic, inauthentic, and even desperate in this striving for sexual and other pleasures. In this respect, the lesson of Kundera’s novels is the exact opposite of a naive reliance on the innocent private sphere: totalitarian Socialist ideology vitiates from within the very sphere of privacy in which we take refuge. – SLAVOJ ZIZEK
