For the past 20 years Howard Ray White has studied American political history in great depth with a particular focus on understanding the political causes of the horrific War Between the States, the political passions that sustained the fighting in spite of the death of 360,000 Federals and 260,000 Confederates, and the political passions that forced the political reconstruction of the conquered states. White's study has resulted in his amazing book series of four volumes, titled: "Bloodstains, An Epic History of the Politics that Produced and Sustained the American Civil War and the Political Reconstruction that Followed." White hosts a weekly public access television show in Charlotte, North Carolina, titled "True American History, 1763 to 1885." These are shown locally at 8pm every Tuesday. Many of the 180 episodes of this TV series can also be viewed on-line at vimeo.com/trueamericanhistory.

I have six wee bairns who are all seventh-generation Henry County, Tennessee, and all from the same doe. It is the people of Henry County that I most want to reach but I am writing to Southerners generally. I am without credentials but rather dare to speak by the same authority as the little boy who cried 'The king has no clothes!' My core belief and starting point is that like everything, we humans have a nature, it is not so hard to understand, and to pretend that it is other than it is, is to jump off a cliff. Which is what we Americans have in fact done.

He has held non-tenure-track positions, both full- and part-time, at Clemson University, Wofford College, Auburn University, the University of South Carolina, Southern Wesleyan University, Midlands Technical College, Limestone College, Greenville Technical College, and USC-Upstate (formerly University of South Carolina at Spartanburg). He is the author of Civil Wrongs: What Went Wrong With Affirmative Action (ICS Press, 1994), Four Cardinal Errors: Reasons for the Decline of the American Republic (Brush Fire Press International, 2011), and most recently, a Kindle ebook, Philosophy Is Not Dead: A Vision of the Discipline’s Future (Brush Fire Press International, 2014). He has written numerous philosophical articles and review essays for refereed journals, book reviews, and chapters in books, as well as over a hundred essays for commentary websites. He has also worked as a professional typist and word processor, obituary writer, and ghostwriter. In 2012, Dr. Yates “resigned” from his adjunct teaching position at USC-Upstate and moved to Santiago, Chile. While learning Spanish he has taught private classes in English, graduate-level philosophy of language and philosophy of science courses at Universidad de Santiago de Chile, and now teaches critical thinking (in English) at Universidad Nacional Andrés Bello. Recently married to a Chilean woman, he lives in Santiago with her and two spoiled cats. He has begun work on a long-term project tentatively entitled The Fifth Stage of Civilization which is intended to encourage and begin framing our long-term thinking about how to move past the prevailing intellectual ethos of postmodern skepticism, materialism (both economic and otherwise), and the present indifference to life and to the systems on which our lives all ultimately depend.
