Thomas Paine came to the United States to fight in the American Revolution. Considered a radical in his time, he was a great supporter of America’s emancipation from Britain. An intellectual writer, he wrote many pamphlets that were distributed during the Revolution. Common Sense, first published anonymously, was one of them.

Common Sense is a treatise against the tyrannical control of the English government over America. It was written anonymously because admitting authorship would be an act of treason, punishable by death. Paine argued that the Puritans fled Britain because they sought freedom from the authoritarian government. He also believed that if America remained under England’s rule, it would be dragged unnecessarily into European wars it had no interest in.

Common Sense also details what Paine hoped would be the future government of a free United States: one where delegates from colonies would form a Congress, which would in turn elect a president. His idea of a separate American government is in sharp contrast to the constitutional monarchal government that ruled Britain.

Thomas Paine would eventually become one of America’s Founding Fathers, who would help write the Constitution of the United States of America. Many of his once radical ideas are now the basis of government of the U.S.A. Common Sense is an important historical document that provides reason and basis for why our government operates the way it does today.
