Cultural inculcation

In the original British version of Being Human, the vampires offer a dying woman the chance to be turned. She replies that mortality if part of being human:
Of course people want eternal life. They also want capital punishment. That doesn't make it right.
In another episode, we are told that
"the Roman Empire gave us engineering and democracy" (yes and sorta kinda) "and the Ottoman Empire gave us education and the judicial system"...WTF?
We have a Turkish school and legal system? On what planet?
