I got the page with the original link, thank you, Don.
An interesting (if somewhat light) read in this respect is Margaret Heffernan's 'Wilful Blindness'.
I would rather ask the question: why are so many educated Westerners silent/indifferent in the face of these continuing self-immolations? Not to mention so many Western governments?
