Civilizing Influences—For Better Or Worse

This morning I went out for breakfast.

While at breakfast, I read the newspaper.

Taking time to eat breakfast and read the paper can only exert a civilizing influence in our fast-paced and often ignorant society.

You see that the headline in the newspaper reports that six NATO troops were killed in Afghanistan.

War is a big part of civilization.

Maybe civilizing influences are a mixed bag.
