Eric Hamell, April 10, 2014 (view all comments by Eric Hamell)
I read this a number of years ago and found it very interesting and engaging. As an early brief for democracy, addressing some arguments that are no longer commonly remembered (particularly those of Edmund Burke), it provides fascinating food for thought. There are also some formulations that can be argued to make the case for more advanced positions than Paine himself took, including ones that are still considered radical today. Apropos here is this quote (a favorite of mine) condemning slavish obedience to arrangements bequeathed by generations past: "There is no form of tyranny more outrageous than an attempt to rule from beyond the grave."
