Subject: RE: BS: USA sliding into depravity (botched execution)
In interests of accuracy:

spellings 'judgment' & 'judgement' are a fairly rare example of co-existing options in English spelling;

pretty well all adjectives can be conventionally formed into recognisable abstract-noun coinages by addition of suffix '-ness', if a noun from which the adjective was formed [eg 'beautiful' from 'beauty', so that 'beautifulness' would be otiose] doesn't already exist: or has a different connotation -- as here, eg, 'judgment', from which 'judgmental' forms, would not be cognate with 'judgmentalness'.

I see where good old Jim is using "civilization" in that silly, tendentious & emotive, sense again. Tch tch; some people just will never learn!
