Civilized (UK spelling civilised) is a term applied to an organized society rather than a disorganized , anarchistic, or primitive one. It was applied to the most modern or enlightened state of human existence for a given time period. *

Civilized individuals are those who are well-mannered, polite, or diplomatic.
