The Rape of Lysistrata
'...the real truth is more terrifying than the article itself. Yes, it terrifies me too, Mimi. You were right when you said that what I wrote was no literature. You called it a torture instrument, remember. I produced a torture instrument. Because I was in an environment of torture. What we need to ban is not the torture instrument but the torture itself...Yes, Mimi what we want to know is that the only way to abolish war is to abolish the cause of war itself. Till then we are all soldiers. Till then, who knows what one believes? Till then 'me' that wrote that article stands here talking to you now can speak for the 'me' that wrote that article. Till then too, Mimi the 'you' that can organise sex strikes for justice cannot speak for the 'you' that can accuse an innocent man of rape. Yes, as you too have found out Mimi, a person under pressure is a person doomed'.
