How much should Americans know about events in other nations?


Americans are too often and too falsely accused of being woefully ignorant about affairs of other nations. America is a vast land mass. Our own affairs are a full time job. We have three cities in California with bigger economies than whole nations. Americans do keep up on major events in hundreds of nations around the globe. We pay attention to the EU anti austerity protests, but we are not going to memorize the Maastricht treaty, for example. What do you think is a reasonable investment for the average American to make when keeping up with global current events?

    Good luck with that! I run into Americans who don't even know about their service members or their veterans, let alone where they are.
