Non-civilized examples are the people of Europe.

This is how I think most people see it:

Civilized is you

Uncivilized is anyone who does things differently.

But I think civilized, is when people live within a system which benefits the general well-being of all. Uncivilized, is a system which is enstored to nurture those who are stongest rather then helping out all.

Personally, if you want to give examples of uncivilized... I'll do it (I don't care to be politically correct):

Capitalism is uncivilized... Socialism is civilized (by core values)
(Laissez Faire is an economic survival of the fittest, whereas socialism is survival for all)

Protestanism is uncivil.... Roman catholics are civil (by core values)
(Portestan is more individual oriented, whereas Roman catholic is community based)

Shaolin Monks, civilized. Eskimoes, civlized.


Islam, 5 percent, christainity and Judaism, etc. can be civilized and also uncivilized, it depends on their tolerance of outsiders. Or whether they teachings allow for the well being of people in general, not just their kind)

Buddhism, Hinduism most likely civilized because of their acceptance and inclusiveness of other beliefs. It ensures the general well being of all.

Hutus and Tutsis - Uncivilized obviously, because their society and/or social structure was not strong enough to endure the race bating of Belguim.

A thorough study of the history of the European reveals the true nature of their being. You really don't have to go that far back in their history but you can to see far greater evidence of their nature. First you can look at how many Native American tribes they murdered, there were hundreds of Native American tribes now many are totally extinct. The European is the only peoples I know of that caused the extinction of specific tribes of Aboriginal peoples on the planet Earth, and almost their entire race. They have done it to animals numerous times.

so you are implying that because aboriginal people are more in harmony with "nature", they are more civilised?

No. Aboriginals do not have the lust for blood like the European.

its all opinion

whose to say europeans were civilised when they raped various land mass from 'un civilised' natives

imo its more savage to rape continants and infect people with smallpox than blow a peace pipe and live off the land

but what do i know?

nah ur right ronin..

everybody has standards by which we personally govern ourselves!
and those standards are shared by most in ur realm feel me?

so when u see whats against ur standards u make rational deductions as to whether what u see is still ok enough!

then u either just stay patient n respective or u speak out!

but then again what do i know :P

yes thats true

the media does it really strongly.. but social background is the core of our understaning of the word civil..

if family value is social background... then thats the root of our comprehension of the word.
