I absolutely loved this book. Paine would be shunned in our society for many of his very anti-federalist ideals. This book changed the way I thought, we have drifted so far into modern socialism that Paine seems to be a very radical character to us. Paine attacks monarchy, federalism and Washington for his federalization of the country. Many of us grew up just accepting that everything the founding fathers did was infallible, but this book inclines me to believe otherwise. With regards to the Rights of Man, I thought it was a very interesting look at the inherent right of the people in relation to the government. The Age of Reason was, also, a good read, and though I don't agree with much of the conclusions he drew out of his logic, I still enjoyed it. I would recommend this title to anyone who wants to know about the repressed part of American history, the radicals.

It's hard to argue with 'Common Sense. ' In America we've been raised to believe aristocracy is silly, inefficient, as well as unfair. We need no convincing any more. The 'Rights of Man,' however, is so radical that if Thomas Paine wrote it today, he'd probably be lynched. Apparently we've gone backwards in our cultural development, because I see no way anyone today would dare to write such inflammatory words. The sad thing is, he has the right idea: belief in God is unquestionable, believe in the Bible is definitely questionable.
