Thomas Paine (1737-1809)
Thomas Paine was an Anglo-American political theorist. He came to the U.S. in 1774 and wrote the extremely successful "Common Sense" (1776), which argued that England should give the U.S. its independence. In 1787 he went to England and wrote "The Rights of Man" (1791-92), which argued that there are natural rights common to all men and only democratic institutions can guarantee them. He was prosecuted for treason and fled to Paris, where he wrote "The Age of Reason" (1794-95).
