    I have already long dispaired that civilised behavior has completely died from extinction in this world and has been replaced by liberalism. Civilised behavior goes hand in hand with the sense of morality while liberalism is narsistic, self-centered and free from moral restrictions. Important to it is freedom at any cost, no matter how much suffering it may cause to others or whether it is ethically right. Civilisation is humble and has respect for other people and therefore it abstains from such "freedom" that causes damage or pain to others, while liberalism is self-gratifying and its haughty "besser-wisserism" tramples on everybody else's toes in the name of "freedom". I'd like to ask: "freedom of what"? Freedom of behaving badly, freedom of hurting other people? What good does such "freedom" serve? While liberalism is self-serving and separates us from G-D, civilised behavior, the Oxford University students show, is the ladder that we climb in order to "grow to the Image of G-D". Thanks to these students, mankind has hope.
