We are always discussing about civilised people and civilization. What do you mean by this? To some it is defined by freedom and democracy with liberalism and market economy. Many would place the individual at the core of democracy and freedom. Society becomes a secondary factor under this doctrine. It also means the acts of individuals are not to be constrained or controlled. I would like to define civilization as the presence of good and ethical values amongst members of society...respect for others , creativity and ability to harmonise diversity, people with knowledge are highly regarded and celebrated. In sum a society that's balanced in words and deeds...premised on honesty and integrity..appreciate differences...caring and sharing materially and spiritually. Then only can we pride ourselves to be called civilised.
