But for the rest of you- it has to do with the word “civilized” and the thought that comes to mind when I say that word.
Especially if I happen to be eating an apple whilst my comrades build a wall out of the slain bodies of our enemies, but that hasn’t happened since May or so…
Anyway, apparently I have a way of saying “civilized” in a manner which suggests anything but. Perhaps it is a gift, but I don’t know. I *personally* tend to think ”civilized” is one of the most over rated and over used words in the English language. ”Civilized” is often a cheap coat of gloss thrown over monstrosity, the smile aimed at your face while a knife heads for your back.
I am no so sure I believe in civilized. I mean, the word- with a definition, exists and all, but I think often it is a cop-out. Honest is better. To the point is better. Even amicably disagreeable is a step up.
Civilized is stage dressing…and as you all know- dressing is for salad.
