If civilization is the art of living together with people not entirely like oneself, the first step in civilization is not so much the invention of material tools as the regularization of social habits. As soon as you begin to say “We always do things this way” the foundation is laid. “Custom is before all law.” As soon as you begin to say,””We have always done things this way-perhaps that might be a better way,” conscious law-making is beginning. As soon as you begin to say, “We do things this way – they do things that way – what is to be done about it?” men are beginning to feel towards justice, that resides between the endless jar of right and wrong.
