In that spirit, then your ignorance about many things in the world is not your school system's fault but rather yours. To add to that your ignorance of many things is even worse because as a westerner you have the internet and a computer at your disposal to learn more ...
Many of the countries believe your type of education is American or European Propaganda and don't want it taught in their school systems. So, it's their own fault on that one too!
Seeing as every child in a third world country has a voice in their governance ...
Seeing as very person in a third world country has a voice in their schooling ...
Seeing as every child and person in a third world country gets proper schooling.
Really? I did not know they were any different. Forgive my ignorance. We don't learn this stuff in America.
Some governments in the middle east have long been feeding incorrect propaganda to their citizens and just like we can witness in North Korea, a dumb general public will not question it and believe all the lies given. It's not "their" fault, it's the fault of those in power with malicious intent.
As is often the case these lies are fed from an early age, just like our education is started from an early age so that we may learn quickly and well.
Those who have achieved adulthood would still linger in the ways of old. The children however is where the future would be.
You made apparent with your answer to this that you understand naught of Middle Eastern culture.
where the group matters more than the individual.[/u]]
In middle eastern culture, the culture of individualism - sociological - isn't as prominent and the role of the group i.e. "the family" is far greater.
The family as an entity has a certain honor and this family identity is far greater than any one member.
This is the reason why you would find honor-killings so prominent, because the defacing of the family's honor is seen as a crime punishable by death.
This has nothing to do with communism, you have a tendency to draw rash conclusions without previous knowledge and nuance of subjects.
