It is possible that these are all cultural differences. A society that has closer to complete candor may have more difficulty "keeping it together". On the other hand, it has less to fear from total disclosure. These differences may underlie a lot of problems in the peace negotiations - the difference between what is said and what is thought and how each side understands or thinks it understands the other's spoken vs. unspoken positions.
