The world is yet uncivilised
Debate Rounds (3)
It is in all likelihood that the perfect state of man would be to abstain from any form of economy or government and to use his intellect to live in a manner that is without conflict between the members of his own species. Living autonomously is the only way to create objective civility.
To want to be civilized within a collective can only be a subjective civility and is therefor up to each individual to decide whether man is civilized.
Are you proposing that mental illness will one day no longer exist and that would be a state of being civilized? It is unclear what your subjective state of being civilized would be but I have serious doubts that it would be feasible or objectively more civilized.
Now look at the issue from a moral point of view. Today, we are living in a role reversed society. More and more kids are defining the boundaries rather than parents teaching them core values and family customs. We rarely see a kid hold the door for someone or even say hello. Civilization to you may mean only advancement of science and industry- but it's a lot more than that. It is about collective humanity, care, forgiveness and love for one's kind in which advanced technology and industry are employed to achieve this purpose.
As far as the argument that I am for more industrialization you are way off. I clearly stated that the only objectively humane society would be one that rejects economic systems and governments. One cannot be objectively humane based on potential for capital gain or because of threat of law or even through threat from religion. The concept of humanity is purely a subjective value placed on a society by individuals therefor any state of any society may be humane.
I appreciate your debate but you have failed to show any objectivity in idea of humanity. The state of human existence is what it is and we can each call it what we will. I don't necessarily like it but you can't call it savage simply because outliers commit crimes while most of us participate nicely in society.
