To many, the idea of the EPR paradox and the possibility of local hidden variables were dismissed by the Bell inequality, although the central points of this argument have been around since the advent of quantum mechanics. Yet, there remains considerable evidence that this inequality can be violated even by classical systems. The question really is whether or not strongly correlated classical fields will also violate Bell's inequality. In a previous paper, it was shown that this was the case. Here, we ask the question as to just how much correlation in the classical waves is required to violate the inequality.
