        • Civilization

792. Why does civilization not produce all the good it can produce?

“Because human beings are not yet ready or willing to obtain that good.”

a) Could it also be because it generates new passions in creating new wants?

“Yes, and because a spirit’s faculties do not progress at the same rate, everything takes time. You cannot expect perfect fruit from an incomplete civilization.” (See Q751-780)
