What are some examples of being civilized?

  • English -

    Being civilized can run a whole spectrum.

    Sometimes teens do not act civilized -- especially boys who burp out loud, keep their rooms a mess, and generally flaunt rules of polite society.

    On the other hand, we could argue that the Nazis were not civilized, despite their love of classical music. It's hard to see some of the terrorists and African thugs as civilized.

    Each generation and group of people have their own definitions of "civilized." For me, I don't know of any truly uncivilized peoples.

    You see if you can think of examples of being "civilized". I will be happy to comment. I do not agree with MsSuem,however, I think there are a number of examples in today's society of uncivilized behavior.
