I don't think it has to do with being conservative. I think it has to do with education. History and social studies are not being taught enough in schools and this leads to general lack of understanding regarding world affairs. When it is taught, it is presented in a friendly way so as not to offend anyone.
In my area of the world, instead of teaching history, schools have started to teach cultural studies which focus on different cultures. It usually relates to things such as, food, dress, and music.

Some people are just too provincial. They don't think that something that doesn't directly affect them is worth their time. They're wrong, there are some things going on that will affect the entire globe. And you're right, Maggie, they're not teaching enough social studies and history in schools.

Social Studies and History might get you there the long way.

Too bad we can't simply teach about caring for each other...
