You know, in Rome, before the execution of virgin vestals, virgins had to be deflowered by the executioner, because until vestal was a virgin, it was somehow inconvenient to execute her. The same thing happens now with revolutionary socialism – first they lose their virginity, and then they are executed. Saddam Hussein, and Palestinian leaders of Ramallah, and Mubarak of course, Gaddafi – they all at a certain stage betrayed the idea of socialistic revolutionism, and they all have started to trade with the West not only with what they had, but also with their ideology, and then made concessions with neo-liberalism. As soon as they succumbed, that is, as soon as they were deprived of virginity, it became convenient to execute them. The same happened to Gaddafi.
