Overview

The Rights of Man by Thomas Paine, Arthur Morey

Rights of Man presents an impassioned defense of the Enlightenment principles of freedom and equality that Thomas Paine believed would soon sweep the world. He boldly claimed, "From a small spark, kindled in America, a flame has arisen, not to be extinguished. Without consuming...it winds its progress from nation to nation." Though many more sophisticated thinkers argued for the same principles and many people died in the attempt to realize them, no one was better able than Paine to articulate them in a way that fired the hopes and dreams of the common man and actually stirred him to revolutionary political action.

About the Author

Thomas Paine (1737-1809) was an author, radical, inventor, intellectual, revolutionary, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He is best remembered as the highly popular pamphleteer whose incendiary Common Sense was largely responsible for motivating the American colonists to declare independence.

Arthur Morey has recorded over two hundred audiobooks in history, fiction, science, business, and religion, earning a number of AudioFile Earphones Awards and two Audie Award nominations. His plays and songs have been produced in New York, Chicago, and Milan, where he has also performed.

While Paine's goal was to defend the French Revolution as it took place, he also provides, perhaps unwittingly, a treatise on natural rights that governments should and must respect if they are to have any legitimacy. He also covers what it means to be a government and where the true power lies. A great plain-language text that is still relevant today, Rights of Man is a must read for anyone interested in some of the theory behind the Constitutional debates in our own country 200+ years ago.

One might assume that a book on political philosophy promises to be a rather dry read, but, aside from a foray into English tax reform in Part Two, this is largely not the case for Rights of Man. Paine's work remains immenitely readable. It was fascinating to read the case for so many of the central principles of American democracy. Many of these principles, including democracy, political equality, liberty, and the separation of church and state we accept as given, and hardly take the time to examine theri foundation. Paine is writing in a time when these ideas were actively being debated.
