Top Ten Things That Create a Civilization

People have been using these techniques for 6,000 years.

The Top Ten

1 Laws

Every society has its own set of laws. However, there's some common laws found in most societies, such as "don't murder" or "don't steal". Laws establish order and prevent total anarchy. - ethanmeinster

Without laws society collapses.

Laws are good

So people can't kill or do thing bad

2 Advanced Agricultural Techniques

People can't survive without food. Once there's enough food for everyone, then no one has to worry about survival as much, causing people to specialize in other jobs. - ethanmeinster



That's right

3 Government

The government produces the laws, and determines how daily life will go.

every civilizatin need a government to run the place.

4 Army

An army is one of the most vital ways to keep order within a civilization.

Although some civilizations were peaceful, like the Indus Valley Civilization, an army is necessary for defending from attacks, establishing order, and earning loot. - ethanmeinster

an army!

5 Trade

Trade benefits everyone, as people would get the necessary materials that they don't have. Many civilizations, such as China, have become rich from high demand of products, such as silk. - ethanmeinster

6 Life
7 Education

Without education, people will have less knowledge and it turns out... addiction, alcoholism,etc!

Yea... then there would be a lot of uneducated people, and that leads to a bad future for them.

8 Social Hierarchy

It helps create a defined society. Social classes can't be too strict, though, like the Indian caste system. - ethanmeinster

Without hierarchy,people will be fighting for goats


9 Culture

Culture very important to creat evolution

10 Written Language

Modern day historians often point out that a civilization has to have a written language to be considered civilized. However, the Incas had no written language, but they are considered very civilized. Nontheless, a written language helps people of a civilization communicate with each other. - ethanmeinster

The Contenders

11 Religion

Most civilizations in history have used religion as a form of political control, including all of Western Europe in the Middle Ages. Nowadays, however, humans have developed secular governments, dividing religion from politics. Most countries around the world have secular governments, but some still have official religions. - ethanmeinster
