R.I.P., Van Winkle

Counterfeit philosophies have polluted all
of your thoughts.
Karl Marx has got ya by the throat, Henry
Kissinger's got you tied up in knots.
When you gonna wake up,
when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the
things that remain?
- "When You Gonna Wake Up?", Bob Dylan, Slow Train Coming
That's the song that came to mind when I read this editorial by Salena Zito. It echoes the sentiments put forth in this editorial from the German newspaper Die Welt, which was just recently emailed to me.
The German editorial was in 2004. Salena's was this week. Same message, still being ignore.
Theo Van Gogh
When ARE we gonna wake up? And will it be too late?
