„Po takových příhodách se pak objevuje zákonitě volání po další hegemonizaci společnosti: zbavíme se Židů, pak Němců, pak buržoazie, pak disidentů, pak Slováků – a kdo bude na řadě příště? Romové? Homosexuálové? Cizinci vůbec? A kdo tu zbude? Čistokrevní Čecháčkové se svým dvorečkem. Nejde jen o to, že takové postoje nebo dokonce taková politika jsou nemravné, jde i o to, že jsou sebevražedné.“
