Illogical geographical segregation in philosophy

The Internet is an astounding platform where geographical distance and time lag collapses facilitating instant meeting of minds. Its contribution has been phenomenal as far as diffusion of knowledge and fermentation of new ideas is concerned. However, if one glances at the philosophy landscape, it seems as if we are living in 1009 CE and not in 2009. The segregation that the Westerners have safeguarded so far is simply illogical and downright repugnant.

The recent endorsement of Marx by a Vatican publication has expectedly caused ripples. Sri Aurobindo and Karl Marx by D. P. Chattopadhyaya is an outstanding study in this context. [TNM]
