One of the little details that show civilization is, I think, calmly responding to the shouting person. There's no sense in yelling. Why shout when you can talk to each other and tell properly? I think it's very ignorant to shout in an argument. I admire people who stay calm and speak up in situations like this. Definitely a sign of civilization.

I think the biggest of the small details that show civilization is to take the trash on the floor and throw it in the trash. This is actually a different indicator of civilization than not throwing garbage on the ground. Because there are people who don't throw away their own trash anyway, but picking up someone else's trash and throwing it away is a civilization for me.
