Thomas Paine: Architect of Cooperative Individualism:

Thomas Paine: Architect of Cooperative Individualism Written by Edward J. Dodson, M.L.A.

PowerPoint Presentation:

“My father being of the Quaker profession, it was my good fortune to have an exceeding good moral education, and a tolerable stock of useful learning.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Lewes

PowerPoint Presentation:

Edward Gibbon John Bevis

PowerPoint Presentation:

Benjamin Franklin

PowerPoint Presentation:

Richard Bache

PowerPoint Presentation:

“That some desperate wretches should be willing to steal and enslave men by violence and murder for gain, is rather lamentable than strange. ...”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“But that many civilized, nay, Christianized people should approve, and be concerned in the savage practice, is surprising; and still persist, though it has been so often proved contrary to the light of nature, to every principle of Justice and Humanity, ...”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Benjamin Rush

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… rescue man from tyranny and false principles of government, and enable him to be free.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“There is another and greater distinction for which no truly natural or religious reason can be assigned, and that is the distinction of men into Kings and Subjects. ...”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Male and Female are the distinctions of nature, good and bad the distinctions of heaven, but how a race of men came into the world so exalted above the rest, and distinguished like some new species, is worth inquiring into, and whether they are the means of happiness or misery to the world.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“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 his 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. ...”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“…What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; ‘tis dearness only that gives everything 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.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“The nearer any disease approaches to a crisis, the nearer it is to a cure.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… instead of civilizing, has tended to brutalize mankind.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“My attachment is to all the world, and not any particular part…”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“At the commencement of the revolution, it was supposed that what is called the executive part of a government was the only dangerous part; but we now see that quite as much mischief, if not more, may be done, and as much arbitrary conduct acted, by a legislature.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“The times that tried men’s souls are over – and the greatest and completest revolution the world ever knew, gloriously and happily accomplished.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… from a nation unaccustomed to honoring literary gentlemen with cash rewards Paine had received more than almost any writer would ever receive from a national or state government in American history.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Lafayette

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Man did not enter into society to become worse than he was before, nor to have fewer rights than he had before, but to have those rights better secured. His natural rights are the foundation of his civil rights.”

Palais du Luxembourg

PowerPoint Presentation:

Gouverneur Morris

PowerPoint Presentation:

Robespierre

PowerPoint Presentation:

James Monroe

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… a thing created by that which is called civilized life.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“[A]s it is impossible to separate the improvement made by cultivation from the earth itself, upon which that improvement is made, the idea of landed property arose from that inseparable connection; ...”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“but it is nevertheless true that it is the value of the improvement only, and not the earth itself, that is individual property.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Every proprietor … of cultivated land owes to the community a ground rent … for the land which he holds. …”

PowerPoint Presentation:

George Washington

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon than the Word of God.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“It is only in the Creation that all our ideas and conceptions of a Word of God can unite. The Creation speaks a universal language, independently of human speech or human language… It is an ever-existing original, which every man can read. …”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… It does not depend upon the will of man whether it shall be published or not; it publishes itself from one end of the earth to the other. It preaches to all nations and to all worlds; and this Word of God reveals to man all that is necessary for man to know of God.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… make a labor of rest, for they oblige a person to sit still from sunrise to sunset on a Sabbath-day, which is hard work.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“The independence of America would have added but little to her own happiness, and been of no benefit to the world, if her government had been formed on the corrupt models of the old world. It was the opportunity of beginning the world anew, as it were; and of bringing forward a new system of government in which the rights of all men should be preserved that gave value to independence.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… found Paine disheveled and drunk at a tavern in New Rochelle. He had not shaved for a fortnight.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Paine by John Wesley Jarvis

PowerPoint Presentation:

“… one of the most pleasant companions I have met with for an old man.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Paine was not a drunkard. He did not, and could not, drink much. Loneliness drove him to the bottle, but in company he almost always kept within his capacity.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

“All the civilized world knows I have been of great service to the United States, and have generously given away talent that would have made me a fortune.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

William Cobbett

PowerPoint Presentation:

“Poor Tom Paine! There he lies: Nobody laughs and nobody cries. Where he has gone and how he fares Nobody knows and nobody cares.”
