Definitions

It seems words like civilization often have two meanings and result in meaningles debates as a result for example civilized can mean "morally admirable" but since morals are subjective that means "civilized people" is a synonym for "people I generally agree with".

The other less connotative definition is "organized/with a complex social and or legal structure".

Personally I favour using hte latter sort of definitions.

A good measure of civilisation is the complexity of things we do without having to think about it?
