Are there peoples more civilized than others? Or is it merely a question of cultural differences?
Just culture. What is acceptable to one may not be acceptable to another and vice versa.
Culture, and "civilization", are subjective, taking showers looked uncivilized to the French 200 years ago, gay marriage seems immoral now thanks to hate groups such as the Catholic Church and all the fascist religions that plague us tax-free, so no.
There are certainly some people who take man-made laws more seriously than others and are deeply concerned with appearing to be civilised in the eyes of society - I just believe this is practiced behaviour and have considerably more respect for those who are true to their nature and maintain respect for others
There are not peoples more civilized than other. There are rules more civilized than others though.
By our Standards of Civillization perhaps yes, but in reality it does tend to come back to cultural differences and beliefs.
I think there are. If some thinks its acceptable to chop hands, do torture, force to marry, forbid science at schools, persecute "infidels", have blasphemy and discriminative laws, etc - thats the lower than modern level of civilization. Saying "its just their culture" about things like that is like accepting them to be OK.
The answer lies in their relationship to God. Look around the world and you will see, those Countries that have deleted God from their corporate lives, live in the stone age and might seem uncivilized. Those that fear God, live in Liberty and in relative peace. There is a belief that you can spread the wealth around. But, that is a fallacy of the left and they seem to forget that wealth grows when invested. Not given away. America was the breadbasket of the world when it was less socialist and more of a Republic as the Founders intended. "If God be for us...who can be against us".
This question is offensive as it is ignorant of the human potential for all people.
Basic "civility" is defined as "too staunch" for Americans but suited for mere butlers in England. It's all relative. It's just a matter of societal norms and mores.
Depend on the concept of 'civilized'. I do believe that every society has the right to follow it's cultural particularity, but a civilized one has to mantain the principles for human right.
