Time for retro music:
Just a cast away, and island lost at sea-o
One lonely day, no one here but me-o
More loneliness, any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair
You should be cool enough to know which song it is. But do you know what philosophical idea this song is closely related to?
Well, this is the answer: Marx' alienation. Remember the idea of surplus, division of labor, division of class etc. that in the end made labor alienated from theirselves, their work, and their society?
I woke up this morning, don't believe what I saw
Hundred billion bottles washed upon the shore
Seems that I'm not alone in being alone
Hundred billion castoways looking for a home
Thank God that we now have internet, emails, blogs, friendster and everything that make us not really alienated...
P.S. Other Marxian philosophy of The Police can also be heard in Synchronicity.
