The Civil Right is a set of ideas that I have thought about over the years. This set of ideas is based on traditional Southern culture and inspired by the ideals of the Southern gentleman and The Old South. 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 – to clearly and firmly connect the label to the definition. If one were to say, “So, you’re a (insert some other label here)!”, then the answer is “No. Stop. End of discussion.” Words have meaning. We mean what we say and we say what we mean.

This is my personal motto. It is what I try to instill in those around me. It is what I now try to pass along to my grandchildren and to those who visit this site.
