Common Sense (Thomas Paine) Book Reviews

HamaltonI’ve been reading common sense by Thomas pane, some men say that I’m intense or I’m insane. You want a review I want to sing hamalton so listen to my declaration. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. And when I meet Tomas Jefferson, I’m going to tell him to include WOMAN in the sequel. WORK.Score: 1/5

Must;Indeed..Score: 5/5

FreedomWhat a visionary. Truly one of America's first patriots. However the thing I found interesting was Paine's use of religion, the Bible in particular, to make so many of his strongest arguments for independence. Especially after i read his later writing, The Age of Reasoning, in which he went to great lengths to belittle the bible, koran and all other books of "revelation" as mostly fodder..Score: 5/5

HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF?Thomas Paine was absolutey brilliant in his insight. However, as a patriot of my country as I read this I immediately realized that this pamphlet is now describing our tyrannical AMERICAN Gov’t..Score: 5/5

Common Sense by Thomas PaineAn essential literature to the American Revolutionary War, Common Sense is a great read for American history junkies. The writings were meant to persuade the Colonists that independence from Britain was more desirable than reconciliation. With this in mind, it's important to note while reading Common Sense that there is a bias, and as such the arguments for remaining under the rule of Britain are not well-represented. Similar to present-day editorials, counter arguments are sometimes dismissed without due analysis. That being said, Common Sense was an immensely popular and influential pamphlet in its time, and provides a unique look into the mindset of Americans on the onset of their fight for independence..Score: 5/5

Before you decide not to read this book READ THISThis book was written before the revolutionary war speaking to early Puritan and Anglican settlers that colonist should stand up against the mother country and become an independent nation. Without leaders like Paine America would still be controlled by Great Britain. So all the other ignorant people giving this book horrible reviews due your research before you open your mouth, and criticize revolutionary authors like Paine that can be compared to that of transcendentalist authors of the lost generation like Sigmund Freud. If I a 15 year old girl can see this book for it's groundbreaking impact on society then and what it has done for America now then all others should see it as well and give it a chance..Score: 5/5

Thomas Paine is INSANE!Why does this fool think it would be a good idea to secede from Great Brooklyn? It would be so much more sensible to stay under the King's guiding hand. He hath taken great measures to keep us safe, and it would be horrible to take it for granted. In the words of Samuel Seabury, "Heed not the rabble who scream, 'revolution!', they have not your interest at heart. Chaos and bloodshed are not a solution, don't let them lead you astray.".Score: 1/5

American PatriotWithout Paine America would never had sought indepndance and only self rule within the English empire. It may be kinda boring but without this writing, American's would only have remainened rebels in a civil war and would have never turned into revolutionaries. This was a radical book for its time and deserves respect for what it accomplished..Score: 5/5

All free men, and those who aspire to beIt will not take you long to read through this book, but it presents a hugely important snapshot of the mindset and readiness of the Americans of the Colonies to become THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Any reader that wants to understand how this nation went from being a subject of a foreign nation to a free and independent republic owes it to themselves to read this short, but extremely relevant narrative..Score: 5/5

STOP!If you are thinking about getting this cause you think you've heard of the author or you like the title, STOP thinking and get out of here. This is a book completely about law, and it bores me to tears. Be smart, and kick yourself out of here- for forever. I'm only giving this a one star because I have to rate it. If I had a choice, I'd give it a negative trillion. Thanks for reading, and hopefully thanks for not reading..Score: 1/5
