    Story
    (67)

    Our founding fathers worked hard to ensure that a small group of wealthy people would never dominate this country. Thomas Jefferson believed that our very democracy depends upon our ability to play referee to the game of business, protecting labor and the public good. But over the last 25 years, we've witnessed an undeclared war against the middle class.

    Overall

    I am not a man of many words, nor am i as eloquent as the author or the other members review's, but I just would like to say, "Thank You Thom for this brilliant book". I also wish I could of met your father so I could thank him for raising you the way he did.

    Thanks for keeping the candle lit for democracy

    Originally published in 1791 as a reply to Edmund Burke's Reflections on the French Revolution, as a vindication of the French Revolution, and as a critique of the British system of government, Rights of Man is unquestionably one of the great classics on the subject of democracy. Paine created a language of modern politics that brought important issues to the common man and the working classes. Employing direct, vehement prose, Paine defended popular rights, national independence, revolutionary war, and economic growth - all of which were considered, at the time, to be dangerous and even seditious issues. Paine's vast influence was due, in large measure to his eloquent literary style, noted for its poignant metaphors, vigor, and rational directness. With Rights of Man, Paine defended the dignity of men in all countries against all those who considered the average person to be merely one of the "swinish multitude." In the United States it fostered sympathy for France, while in Britain, it circulated among republican clubs and became a classic document in the working-class movement.

    "My Hero"
    Overall

    Perfect. This is a True American Hero that was mostly forgotten because he was 200 years ahead of his time. One of the very few men that stand out in history and deserve nothing less than to be called "Great"
