Disagreed. This is the kind of sentence that cannot be correctly
understood without the (missing) original context.

It is also, IMHO, a rather poor wording. The categories of "civilized"
and "barbarian", as any kind of binary thinking (us vs. them) are routinely
used to diminish foreign or dominated cultures (or worse, think about
colonialism). I think they shouldn't be related with either a CoC, or the
more general efforts towards diversity.

The evolution of the meaning of "barbarian" should shed a light:
