I'm not sure why I should necessarily know what someone else thinks is imperative to know. I believe it is important to have a good understanding of history... so as to not allow the mistakes of the past to be revisited... but that is subjective because perhaps different people have different opinions on what should be retained and what should be avoided. Requiring people to be indoctrinated with a state sanctioned history lesson feels a little bit cult-like to me. History... despite the fact that it is written in the annals of time... is very much subject to the bias of those retelling it. In the service of liberty... it is always better to allow for the revisionists... nothing should be outside the realm of question.
The Australian government stipulates all new immigrants have to do a test about "Australia" before they are even considered as ideal applicants. I don't know about you, I wouldn't be able to answer some of the questions that were on the test let alone provide a list of all former or reigning Prime Ministers Etc… Mind you, most people tend to know other people’s countries' landmarks, lifestyle, who’s who of society, more than they know theirs.
There would be a lot of failures...I'll admit, I don't know everything about my country - especially politically, as I have a fairly apathetic ideal when it comes to politics, and I'm certain there isn't a person here who can answer all questions correctly.
I'm be sent somewhere else... All I know about this country is that George Bush is presendent and he's doing a GREAT job :D Lol... Just kidding :P
No u must have misunderstood, I meant like u wud have to take a test on the country u live in, but ur still right the majority wud fail
I think the majority of people would fail such a test. In fact they wouldn't even know which country the test is about.
I would be kicked out lol i dont pay attention to the drama thats happening in this country
People would be pissed off their government is wasting tax dollars on it.
A lot of people would be getting exiled. Haha.
