The ignorance of Americans ...

... is one of the greatest myths of modern times.

Seriously. Everyone always says how ignorant Americans are. They do this to distract attention from how pig-ignorant they and their fellow citizens are. As a quick example, most surveys show that significantly under half of people aged 16-19 in UK know who Winston Churchill was.

American ignorance is perhaps more well-known, but European ignorance runs just as deep. Sure, Americans are ignorant about the rest of the world, but then the rest of the world is ignorant about the rest of the world too, so its a draw.
