Paine was before his time and we should be grateful for the tremendous sacrifices he made. His pamphlet, Common Sense, ignited the common people into action toward the Revolutionary War in a way no other leader had been able to.

He did not hold back his opinions on religion writing, “All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.” Some of his radical ideas also included social security for the poor and elderly, abolition of slavery, and universal basic income.

Disparaged by his enemies, condemned, outlawed, and incarcerated for making his beliefs public, there were only 6 people who attended his funeral. Even the Quakers would not allow him to be buried in their graveyard. On his deathbed, Paine was asked if he believed that Jesus Christ was the son of God. Paine’s reply, and last words were, “I have no wish to believe on that subject.”
