What is a civilization? Hopefully, when members of our body of Christ read my thread it will enlighten you spiritually, intellectually and legally. Pardon my speech. It may sound as a tongue twister. Yet, such is unavoidable due to the topic. A civilization is a civic society that seeks to secure the civil liberties of its civilians. The civilians, who live within the city elect civic officials to legislate civil laws. The civil laws permit the civilians to settle his or her civil dispute in a civilized fashion. The civic community benefits when each civilian demonstrates his or her civility to act civil. In contrast, an uncivilized and/or rural society, seeks to secure law and order through primitive means of enforcing martial law. Martial law does not acknowledge the civil liberties of its civilian population. Rather, its ruling class legislates laws that order the civilians to believe and/or behave in a uniform manner to reflect the views of the moral majority. Under martial law, the State can court martial a civilian as if he or she were a militant soldier. A militant soldier is construed as property. Thus, he or she is not afforded his or her civil right to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Whereas, property may not bring suit in court (See Dred Scott vs. Irene Sandford 1865 USC). In retaliation, the militants take up arms against the government to defend his or her civil rights through uncivilized means. The repercussion leads to a reckless endangerment of each civilian. As the danger escalates to crisis levels, then the civilians are coerced to pay higher taxes to the government. The government utilizes the taxes to hire police and/or military to protect the civilian population from the militants, who refuse to be ordered around by the government. The end product of imposing martial law upon a civilian population is anarchy against the government and/or complete collapse thereof.
