A society or condition of society that has risen above the state of savagery
and barbaric practices, and shows a sense of justice and fairness, giving equality, rights and freedoms to all.
For example, native colonies
who are kind and loving to each other, respect nature by giving back what they take, living in harmony with
nature and the seasons, should be considered civilized. Whereas people who attack other countries and destroy
their culture, exploit the Earth and destroy
it, ignore their poor, kill
their own unborn babies and even make it legal, spread pollution
everywhere, showing greed instead of kindness and compassion, should be considered an uncivilized
people. The classic example of an uncivilized
all of the above savagery
and barbaric behavior patterns, is America.
Mahatma Gandhi was once
asked what he thought of "Western civilization". He said "I think it would
be a good idea," emphasizing that the West has not become civilized
