To Be Civilized

I have no interest in being “civilized.”

By Anthony Boyd

To be “civilized,” in this era, is to yield to a series of emotions spurred by the boogeyman holding a bag of tricks.

That is to say, the person who is most successful at suppressing and controlling their emotions is a clear indication that they are uncivilized or at least less civilized than the average world citizen.

They’re not titillated by any of the antics deployed on society at scale.

The one who is civilized responds to the aforementioned bag of tricks as expected then herded to “safety” in a sheep-like fashion.

I have no interest in being “civilized.”
