Thomas Paine

And his walk through history

Thomas Paine, a brief summary

Thomas Paine, born February 9, 1737, lived in Thetford, Norfolk, Great Britain, wrote his two pamphlets, "The Age Of Reason", which advocated deism, promoted reason and free thought, and argued against institutionalized religion in general. His second pamphlet "Agrarian Justice", discussed the origins of property and introduced the concept of a guaranteed minimum income. He continued to write till he was arrested in December 1793, but was quickly released in 1794.


The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.

Thomas Paine had moral, because in his two pamphlets he was not afraid to say what he meant, even if it meant being arrested for his views of certain things, and he was very wise and thoughtful.

"Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in it's best state is but a necessary evil." - Thomas Paine
