It offers a solution for Americans disgusted with and alarmed at the threat of tyranny. Whereas colonial resentments were originally directed primarily against the king's ministers and Parliament, Paine laid the responsibility firmly at the king's door.
Common Sense was the most widely read pamphlet of the American Revolution. It was a clarion call for unity against the corrupt British court, so as to realize America's providential role in providing an asylum for liberty.
Written in a direct and lively style, it denounced the decaying despotisms of Europe and pilloried hereditary monarchy as an absurdity.
At a time when many still hoped for reconciliation with Britain, Common Sense demonstrated to many the inevitability of separation. Paine was not on the whole expressing original ideas in Common Sense , but rather employing rhetoric as a means to arouse resentment of the Crown.
To achieve these ends, he pioneered a style of political writing suited to the democratic society he envisioned, with Common Sense serving as a primary example.
Part of Paine's work was to render complex ideas intelligible to average readers of the day, with clear, concise writing unlike the formal, learned style favored by many of Paine's contemporaries.
Common Sense was immensely popular in disseminating to a very wide audience ideas that were already in common use among the elite who comprised Congress and the leadership cadre of the emerging nation, who rarely cited Paine's arguments in their public calls for independence.
Loyalists vigorously attacked Common Sense ; one attack, titled Plain Truth , by Marylander James Chalmers , said Paine was a political quack  and warned that without monarchy, the government would "degenerate into democracy".
Adams disagreed with the type of radical democracy promoted by Paine that men who did not own property should still be allowed to vote and hold public office and published Thoughts on Government in to advocate a more conservative approach to republicanism.
Sophia Rosenfeld argues that Paine was highly innovative in his use of the commonplace notion of "common sense".
He synthesized various philosophical and political uses of the term in a way that permanently impacted American political thought.
He used two ideas from Scottish Common Sense Realism : that ordinary people can indeed make sound judgments on major political issues, and that there exists a body of popular wisdom that is readily apparent to anyone.
Paine also used a notion of "common sense" favored by philosophes in the Continental Enlightenment. They held that common sense could refute the claims of traditional institutions.
Thus, Paine used "common sense" as a weapon to delegitimize the monarchy and overturn prevailing conventional wisdom. Rosenfeld concludes that the phenomenal appeal of his pamphlet resulted from his synthesis of popular and elite elements in the independence movement.
According to historian Robert Middlekauff , Common Sense became immensely popular mainly because Paine appealed to widespread convictions. Monarchy, he said, was preposterous and it had a heathenish origin.
It was an institution of the devil. Paine pointed to the Old Testament , where almost all kings had seduced the Israelites to worship idols instead of God.
Paine also denounced aristocracy, which together with monarchy were "two ancient tyrannies. That was, Middlekauff says, exactly what most Americans wanted to hear.
He calls the Revolutionary generation "the children of the twice-born". In late , Paine published The American Crisis pamphlet series to inspire the Americans in their battles against the British army.
He juxtaposed the conflict between the good American devoted to civic virtue and the selfish provincial man. These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
Tyranny, like Hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated.
The following year, he alluded to secret negotiation underway with France in his pamphlets. His enemies denounced his indiscretions.
There was scandal; together with Paine's conflict with Robert Morris and Silas Deane it led to Paine's expulsion from the Committee in However, in , he accompanied John Laurens on his mission to France.
Eventually, after much pleading from Paine, New York State recognized his political services by presenting him with an estate at New Rochelle , New York and Paine received money from Pennsylvania and from Congress at Washington's suggestion.
During the Revolutionary War, Paine served as an aide-de-camp to the important general, Nathanael Greene. In what may have been an error, and perhaps even contributed to his resignation as the secretary to the Committee of Foreign Affairs, Paine was openly critical of Silas Deane , an American diplomat who had been appointed in March by the Congress to travel to France in secret.
Deane's goal was to influence the French government to finance the colonists in their fight for independence.
Paine largely saw Deane as a war profiteer who had little respect for principle, having been under the employ of Robert Morris , one of the primary financiers of the American Revolution and working with Pierre Beaumarchais , a French royal agent sent to the colonies by King Louis to investigate the Anglo—American conflict.
Paine uncovered the financial connection between Morris, who was Superintendent for Finance of the Continental Congress, and Deane. Wealthy men, such as Robert Morris, John Jay and powerful merchant bankers , were leaders of the Continental Congress and defended holding public positions while at the same time profiting off their own personal financial dealings with governments.
This was alleged to be effectively an embarrassment to France, which potentially could have jeopardized the alliance.
John Jay, the President of the Congress, who had been a fervent supporter of Deane, immediately spoke out against Paine's comments. The controversy eventually became public, and Paine was then denounced as unpatriotic for criticizing an American revolutionary.
He was even physically assaulted twice in the street by Deane supporters. This much-added stress took a large toll on Paine, who was generally of a sensitive character and he resigned as secretary to the Committee of Foreign Affairs in Much later, when Paine returned from his mission to France, Deane's corruption had become more widely acknowledged.
Many, including Robert Morris, apologized to Paine and Paine's reputation in Philadelphia was restored. In , Paine published a pamphlet entitled "Public Good," in which he made the case that territories west of the 13 colonies that had been part of the British Empire belonged after the Declaration of Independence to the American government, and did not belong to any of the 13 states or to any individual speculators.
A royal charter of had granted to the Virginia Company land stretching to the Pacific Ocean. A small group of wealthy Virginia land speculators, including the Washington, Lee, and Randolph families, had taken advantage of this royal charter to survey and to claim title to huge swaths of land, including much land west of the 13 colonies.
In "Public Good," Paine argued that these lands belonged to the American government as represented by the Continental Congress. This angered many of Paine's wealthy Virginia friends, including Richard Henry Lee of the powerful Lee family, who had been Paine's closest ally in Congress, George Washington , Thomas Jefferson and James Madison , all of whom had claimed to huge wild tracts that Paine was advocating should be government owned.
The view that Paine had advocated eventually prevailed when the Northwest Ordinance of was passed. The animosity Paine felt as a result of the publication of "Public Good" fueled his decision to embark with Lieutenant Colonel John Laurens on a mission to travel to Paris to obtain funding for the American war effort.
Paine accompanied Col. John Laurens to France and is credited with initiating the mission. The meetings with the French king were most likely conducted in the company and under the influence of Benjamin Franklin.
Laurens, "positively objected" that General Washington should propose that Congress remunerate him for his services, for fear of setting "a bad precedent and an improper mode".
Paine made influential acquaintances in Paris and helped organize the Bank of North America to raise money to supply the army.
Congress in recognition of his service to the nation. Henry Laurens father of Col. John Laurens had been the ambassador to the Netherlands , but he was captured by the British on his return trip there.
When he was later exchanged for the prisoner Lord Cornwallis in late , Paine proceeded to the Netherlands to continue the loan negotiations. There remains some question as to the relationship of Henry Laurens and Thomas Paine to Robert Morris as the Superintendent of Finance and his business associate Thomas Willing who became the first president of the Bank of North America in January They had accused Morris of profiteering in and Willing had voted against the Declaration of Independence.
Although Morris did much to restore his reputation in and , the credit for obtaining these critical loans to "organize" the Bank of North America for approval by Congress in December should go to Henry or John Laurens and Thomas Paine more than to Robert Morris.
Paine bought his only house in on the corner of Farnsworth Avenue and Church Streets in Bordentown City , New Jersey and he lived in it periodically until his death in This is the only place in the world where Paine purchased real estate.
In , a bridge of Paine's design was built across the Schuylkill River at Philadelphia. At this time his work on single-arch iron bridges led him back to Paris, France.
Franklin provided letters of introduction for Paine to use to gain associates and contacts in France.
Later that year, Paine returned to London from Paris. He then released a pamphlet on August 20 called Prospects on the Rubicon: or, an investigation into the Causes and Consequences of the Politics to be Agitated at the Meeting of Parliament.
Tensions between England and France were increasing, and this pamphlet urged the British Ministry to reconsider the consequences of war with France.
Paine sought to turn the public opinion against the war to create better relations between the countries, avoid the taxes of war upon the citizens, and not engage in a war he believed would ruin both nations.
Back in London by , Paine would become engrossed in the French Revolution after it began in , and decided to travel to France in Meanwhile, conservative intellectual Edmund Burke launched a counterrevolutionary blast against the French Revolution, entitled Reflections on the Revolution in France , which strongly appealed to the landed class, and sold 30, copies.
Paine set out to refute it in his Rights of Man He wrote it not as a quick pamphlet, but as a long, abstract political tract of 90, words which tore apart monarchies and traditional social institutions.
On January 31, , he gave the manuscript to publisher Joseph Johnson. A visit by government agents dissuaded Johnson, so Paine gave the book to publisher J.
Jordan, then went to Paris, per William Blake 's advice. The book appeared on March 13, and sold nearly a million copies.
It was "eagerly read by reformers, Protestant dissenters, democrats, London craftsmen, and the skilled factory-hands of the new industrial north".
It detailed a representative government with enumerated social programs to remedy the numbing poverty of commoners through progressive tax measures.
Radically reduced in price to ensure unprecedented circulation, it was sensational in its impact and gave birth to reform societies. An indictment for seditious libel followed, for both publisher and author, while government agents followed Paine and instigated mobs, hate meetings, and burnings in effigy.
A fierce pamphlet war also resulted, in which Paine was defended and assailed in dozens of works. He was then tried in absentia and found guilty, although never executed.
In summer of , he answered the sedition and libel charges thus: "If, to expose the fraud and imposition of monarchy Paine was an enthusiastic supporter of the French Revolution, and was granted honorary French citizenship alongside prominent contemporaries such as Alexander Hamilton , George Washington , Benjamin Franklin and others.
Paine's honorary citizenship was in recognition of the publishing of his Rights of Man, Part II and the sensation it created within France.
Several weeks after his election to the National Convention, Paine was selected as one of nine deputies to be part of the Convention's Constitutional Committee, who were charged to draft a suitable constitution for the French Republic.
He voted for the French Republic, but argued against the execution of Louis XVI , saying the monarch should instead be exiled to the United States: firstly, because of the way royalist France had come to the aid of the American Revolution; and secondly, because of a moral objection to capital punishment in general and to revenge killings in particular.
However, Paine's speech in defense of Louis XVI was interrupted by Jean-Paul Marat , who claimed that as a Quaker, Paine's religious beliefs ran counter to inflicting capital punishment and thus he should be ineligible to vote.
Marat interrupted a second time, stating that the translator was deceiving the convention by distorting the meanings of Paine's words, prompting Paine to provide a copy of the speech as proof that he was being correctly translated.
Regarded as an ally of the Girondins , he was seen with increasing disfavor by the Montagnards , who were now in power; and in particular by Maximilien Robespierre.
A decree was passed at the end of excluding foreigners from their places in the Convention Anacharsis Cloots was also deprived of his place.
Paine was arrested and imprisoned in December Paine wrote the second part of Rights of Man on a desk in Thomas 'Clio' Rickman 's house, with whom he was staying in before he fled to France.
This desk is currently on display in the People's History Museum in Manchester. Paine was arrested in France on December 28, Joel Barlow was unsuccessful in securing Paine's release by circulating a petition among American residents in Paris.
Paine himself protested and claimed that he was a citizen of the U. However, Gouverneur Morris , the American minister to France, did not press his claim, and Paine later wrote that Morris had connived at his imprisonment.
Paine narrowly escaped execution. A chalk mark was supposed to be left by the gaoler on the door of a cell to denote that the prisoner inside was due to be removed for execution.
In Paine's case, the mark had accidentally been made on the inside of his door rather than the outside; this was due to the fact that the door of Paine's cell had been left open whilst the gaoler was making his rounds that day, since Paine had been receiving official visitors.
But for this quirk of fate, Paine would have been executed the following morning. He kept his head and survived the few vital days needed to be spared by the fall of Robespierre on 9 Thermidor July 27, Paine was released in November largely because of the work of the new American Minister to France, James Monroe ,  who successfully argued the case for Paine's American citizenship.
In addition to receiving a British patent for the single-span iron bridge, Paine developed a smokeless candle  and worked with inventor John Fitch in developing steam engines.
In , Paine lived in Paris with Nicholas Bonneville and his wife. As well as Bonneville's other controversial guests, Paine aroused the suspicions of authorities.
Beauvert had been outlawed following the coup of 18 Fructidor on September 4, In , still under police surveillance, Bonneville took refuge with his father in Evreux.
Paine stayed on with him, helping Bonneville with the burden of translating the "Covenant Sea". The same year, Paine purportedly had a meeting with Napoleon.
Napoleon claimed he slept with a copy of Rights of Man under his pillow and went so far as to say to Paine that "a statue of gold should be erected to you in every city in the universe".
In December , he wrote two essays, one of which was pointedly named Observations on the Construction and Operation of Navies with a Plan for an Invasion of England and the Final Overthrow of the English Government ,  in which he promoted the idea to finance 1, gunboats to carry a French invading army across the English Channel.
In , Paine returned to the subject, writing To the People of England on the Invasion of England advocating the idea.
Upset that U. President George Washington, a lifelong friend, did nothing during Paine's imprisonment in France, Paine believed Washington had betrayed him and conspired with Robespierre.
While staying with Monroe, Paine planned to send Washington a letter of grievance on the former President's birthday. Monroe stopped the letter from being sent, and after Paine's criticism of the Jay Treaty , which was supported by Washington, Monroe suggested that Paine live elsewhere.
Paine then sent a stinging letter to George Washington, in which he described him as an incompetent commander and a vain and ungrateful person.
Having received no response, Paine contacted his lifelong publisher Benjamin Bache , the Jeffersonian democrat , to publish his Letter to George Washington of in which he derided Washington's reputation by describing him as a treacherous man who was unworthy of his fame as a military and political hero.
Paine wrote that "the world will be puzzled to decide whether you are an apostate or an impostor; whether you have abandoned good principles or whether you ever had any".
He also commented on Washington's character, saying that Washington had no sympathetic feelings and was a hypocrite. In or , Paine left France for the United States, also paying the passage for Bonneville's wife Marguerite Brazier and the couple's three sons, Benjamin , Louis and Thomas Bonneville , to whom Paine was godfather.
Paine returned to the United States in the early stages of the Second Great Awakening and a time of great political partisanship. The Age of Reason gave ample excuse for the religiously devout to dislike him and the Federalists attacked him for his ideas of government stated in Common Sense, for his association with the French Revolution and for his friendship with President Jefferson.
Also still fresh in the minds of the public was his Letter to Washington published six years before his return. This was compounded when his right to vote was denied in New Rochelle on the grounds that Gouverneur Morris did not recognize him as an American and Washington had not aided him.
Brazier took care of Paine at the end of his life and buried him after his death on June 8, In his will, Paine left the bulk of his estate to Marguerite, including acres In , the fall of Napoleon finally allowed Bonneville to rejoin his wife in the United States where he remained for four years before returning to Paris to open a bookshop.
After his death, Paine's body was brought to New Rochelle, but the Quakers would not allow it to be buried in their graveyard as per his last will, so his remains were buried under a walnut tree on his farm.
In , English agrarian radical journalist William Cobbett , who in had published a hostile continuation  of Francis Oldys George Chalmer 's The Life of Thomas Paine ,  dug up his bones and transported them back to England with the intention to give Paine a heroic reburial on his native soil, but this never came to pass.
The bones were still among Cobbett's effects when he died over fifteen years later, but were later lost. There is no confirmed story about what happened to them after that, although various people have claimed throughout the years to own parts of Paine's remains, such as his skull and right hand.
At the time of his death, most American newspapers reprinted the obituary notice from the New York Evening Post that was in turn quoting from The American Citizen ,  which read in part: "He had lived long, did some good, and much harm".
Only six mourners came to his funeral, two of whom were black, most likely freedmen. Many years later the writer and orator Robert G.
Ingersoll wrote:. Thomas Paine had passed the legendary limit of life. One by one most of his old friends and acquaintances had deserted him.
Maligned on every side, execrated, shunned and abhorred — his virtues denounced as vices — his services forgotten — his character blackened, he preserved the poise and balance of his soul.
He was a victim of the people, but his convictions remained unshaken. He was still a soldier in the army of freedom, and still tried to enlighten and civilize those who were impatiently waiting for his death.
Even those who loved their enemies hated him, their friend — the friend of the whole world — with all their hearts. At his funeral no pomp, no pageantry, no civic procession, no military display.
In a carriage, a woman and her son who had lived on the bounty of the dead — on horseback, a Quaker, the humanity of whose heart dominated the creed of his head — and, following on foot, two negroes filled with gratitude — constituted the funeral cortege of Thomas Paine.
Biographer Eric Foner identifies a utopian thread in Paine's thought, writing: "Through this new language he communicated a new vision—a utopian image of an egalitarian, republican society".
Paine's utopianism combined civic republicanism , belief in the inevitability of scientific and social progress and commitment to free markets and liberty generally.
The multiple sources of Paine's political theory all pointed to a society based on the common good and individualism.
Paine expressed a redemptive futurism or political messianism. Later, his encounters with the Indigenous peoples of the Americas made a deep impression.
The ability of the Iroquois to live in harmony with nature while achieving a democratic decision-making process helped him refine his thinking on how to organize society.
On March 8, , one month after Paine became the editor of The Pennsylvania Magazine , the magazine published an anonymous article titled "African Slavery in America," the first prominent piece in the colonies proposing the emancipation of African-American slaves and the abolition of slavery.
Paine is often credited with writing the piece,  on the basis of later testimony by Benjamin Rush, cosigner of the Declaration of Independence.
By contrast, journalist John Nichols writes that Paine's "fervent objections to slavery " led to his exclusion from power during the early years of the Republic.
In his Rights of Man, Part Second , Paine advocated a comprehensive program of state support for the population to ensure the welfare of society, including state subsidy for poor people, state-financed universal public education, and state-sponsored prenatal care and postnatal care , including state subsidies to families at childbirth.
Recognizing that a person's "labor ought to be over" before old age, Paine also called for a state pension to all workers starting at age 50, which would be doubled at age His last pamphlet, Agrarian Justice , published in the winter of , opposed agrarian law and agrarian monopoly and further developed his ideas in the Rights of Man about how land ownership separated the majority of people from their rightful, natural inheritance and means of independent survival.
The U. Social Security Administration recognizes Agrarian Justice as the first American proposal for an old-age pension and basic income or citizen's dividend.
Per Agrarian Justice :. In advocating the case of the persons thus dispossessed, it is a right, and not a charity Payne was cast with a recurring role in Season 6 of The Walking Dead, as Paul "Jesus" Rovia, and promoted to series regular for season 7.
