I think Thomas Paine’s Common Sense Pamphlet is as relevent then and more so today!
But that is not why I support the Twelve Visions Party. The reason why I support the
Twelve Visions Party is because of the Prime Literature and the Prime Law and the
Neothink Society and the like minded people who are owners of this Prime Literature take
Thomas Paine’s Common Sense to a whole new level called neothink and if you don’t know
what that means maybe it is time you learn and here is a good place to start your
research. After reading Thomas Paine’s Common Sense go to
THOMAS PAINE’S COMMON SENSE
PAMPHLET 3rd Edition
“These are the times that try men/women souls”
Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET
sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour; a long habit of not thinking a thing WRONG, gives it a superficial appearance of being RIGHT, and raises at first a formidable outcry
in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.
As a long and violent abuse of power, is generally the Means of calling the right of it in question (and in Matters too which might never have been thought of, had not the Sufferers been aggravated into the inquiry) and as the King of England hath undertaken in his OWN RIGHT, to support the Parliament in what he calls THEIRS, and as the good people of this country are grievously oppressed by the combination, they have an undoubted privilege to inquire into the pretensions of both, and equally to reject the usurpation of either. In the following sheets, the author hath studiously avoided every thing which
is personal among ourselves.
Compliments as well as censure to individuals make no part thereof. The wise, and the worthy, need not the triumph of a pamphlet; and those whose
sentiments are injudicious, or unfriendly, will cease of themselves unless too much pains are bestowed upon their conversion. The cause of America is in a great measure the cause
of all mankind. Many circumstances hath, and will arise, which are not local, but universal, and through which the principles of all Lovers of Mankind are affected, and in the Event of which, their Affections are interested. The laying a Country desolate with
Fire and Sword, declaring War against the natural rights of all Mankind, and extirpating the Defenders thereof from the Face of the Earth, is the Concern of every Man to whom Nature hath given the Power of feeling; of which Class, regardless of Party Censure, is the AUTHOR.
P. S. The Publication of this new Edition hath been delayed, with a View of taking notice(had it been necessary) of any Attempt to refute the Doctrine of Independence: As no Answer hath yet appeared, it is now presumed that none will, the Time needful for getting such a Performance ready for the Public being considerably past. Who the Author of this Production is, is wholly unnecessary to the Public, as the Object for Attention is the DOCTRINE ITSELF, not the MAN. Yet it may not be unnecessary to say, That he is
unconnected with any Party, and under no sort of Influence public or private, but the influence of reason and principle.
Philadelphia, February 14, 1776
Remember Thomas Paine and those of his time didn’t have to deal with Career Politicians wrecking our monetary system with a run away deficit climbing 2 to 3 million dollars every minute!
If our forefathers were alive that includes Thomas Paine and had to deal with the events of today They wouldn’t be calling for revolution they would be supporting the Twelve Visions Party just like me and my like minded neothink brothers and neothink
