The act of joining disparate peoples together to create a working homogenous unit that functions for the benefit of all. Something humanity aspires to.

Fire raging hot, scale it down. Purify the bounds of existence into a simple set of rules. Constraints, promoting.

I am going to school everyday so that I may one day acquire a “civilized” life. I hope to not only civilize myself but also one day my children, grandchildren, and whoever the hell else I encounter depending upon how long I live. If I am not civil I will influence far less people.
By Eric on 10.16.2012
I am civilized on my own terms. No one else can tell me how to define my civility. I strive to create my own way of life unlike any other. This is what truly makes me civilized: creativity, compassion, faith, love, success.

I believe it is very difficult to civilize young boys, particularly after spending 9 days at scout camp with 9 year olds. Every stick must be picked up and used as a sword, every rock must be kicked or thrown.

How difficult it seems to teach table manners, please and thank you, look both ways. In order to create a level playing field we all need to have and participate in the same minimal rules of order.

i’m not very civilized, i’m behind the 8 ball on that one. i’m vile, rude, nasty and disgusting… i’m the guy you don’t want to bring home to your mother

Civilization isn’t as civilized as intended. Civilize is word of the past, and of exaggerated meaning. No one is civilized. What is it anyway? It’s traveled too far from the broken book it sprang from, the beautiful idea it drifted away from into the ugly truth it is today.

Civilize isn’t really a word you use all that often, y’know? Like, civilizeD, that’s one you get a lot, but the verb, civilize, to civilize, not so much. I guess that’s probably a good thing, though. Guess that at least gives the appearance that we’re not in the business of trying to “civilize” other peoples anymore.

To civilize is to make bread and honey and tell everyone you have the skills of Nemo on the one movie about a fish and his mother. You know, the one where she gets mutilated by sharks? Yeah, that was the exact opposite of “civilized.” So basically, what I’m trying to say is that you shouldn’t mutilate peoples mothers.

When you are in fifth grade you yell at your best friend that the two of you need to be “Civilized human beings.” HAHA! The memories this word brings back. Making duck noises at people in restaurants, than being civil (or as close as you can be to that) the next second…
By caroline URL on 10.16.2012
Civilization. It’s something we’re used to hearing, but how civilized are we truly? Think about it; the murder, the pain, the things that make us more animalistic than human. It’s things that we should be ashamed to include in our civilization, yet we act like it’s nothing. It’s common, it’s okay. Is it really, though? Can you honestly say that murder is okay? Can you tell me that it’s okay to be ignorant to the world around you? It’s not. We are not civilized, no matter how much we pretend we are.

civilize is something that will never happen in america. it means to me to be human and treat people how you want to be treated.!

It’s what we humans need to do to start living again. This time our mind needs it more than our body or habits. Or there will be a moment when animals will rule us.

To become part of the people is important; I have come to notice communication among neighbors/ strangers/ natives is vital to a healthy lifestyle. My life at 24 is at the cusp of social development, call me a late bloomer(go ahead make a joke about my interpersonal inept progress[contradictory word choices]), Today I’ll live as if it were my last day, even with the given circumstances and situations, I will not push or fight against any barrier of any sort, I will allow what is and what will be to fashion over in its own season; I will be apart of this celestial realm I call my life.
Promises, promises, no promises, make no promises and only speak truth and feed everything love and light and no one will ever weigh you down.

“You want to talk like civilized people? Then get me out of these chains!” she yelled, face going red.
“Soryy, it is not in our power or interest to do so.” the man replied. “You were caught harboring a dangerous criminal, miss and we need to ask you a few questions.”

The ability to create the illusion of progress, a poor image that is gone in an instant. Savagery is honest. Civilization comes with shine and sparkle but it is a veneer for our most primitive instincts.
By Sarah Forester on 10.16.2012
civilizations, we learned about them in 6th grade. I had mrs. waterman as a teacher. I thought it was really cool how they had goats and grew things and they were hunter gatherers and stuff. i always wanted to go on an adventure and do that too.

They tried to civilize the girl. Tried to make her a pretty thing, put her in petticoats and corsets and lace. But she was a wild one. The older villagers liked to discuss her sometimes.
By Lynn on 10.16.2012
there is no civilization. there is no way to civilize a human being. we are primal. we are raw. there are hands and feet and eyes and thoughts but there is no cage there is no cage there is no cage except our own ribs and our own skin we must not civilize we must monsterize we must go with the flow and the ebb of our own blood rivers.
By Bee on 10.16.2012
Its a need. My dog was never one to be. But as human evolution indicates there is a need for it. For stability, comfort and resistance against surprises which we cant face.

Civilization is only a group of savages using their customs and claiming them to be coreect. Civilized is nothing more than fitting into the norm. This norm has been learned over years, tweaked and changed, so that individuals will fit into molds created by those who rule. Civilize means nothing more than to be controlled, changed, and turned into a robotic mechanism to be at the will of others.
