“The Civil Right is a set of ideas that I have thought about over the years. This site serves as a repository of those ideas, under the label of Civil Right, in the hope that others may find it to be the idea set that they identify with.

Having a clearly identified label (the Civil Right) is important. A label must be tied to a stable set of ideas to be useful.

This site has a very simple purpose – to define the Civil Right and what it stands for, so it will be kept simple and small. I have no plans or intentions for my role in this to extend beyond simply maintaining and refining this set of ideas.”
