Common Sense and The Declaration of Independence

The Giants of Political Thought Series
By Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, George Smith, Pat Childs & Sharon Weil
Narrated by Craig Deitschmann, Bill Middleton & Ralph Childs / 2 hours 30 minutes

Common Sense examines how Americans defended the right to resist unjust laws and how this right of resistance was transformed into a right of revolution. It examines Thomas Paine's views on the difference between society and government, his defense of republican government, his total rejection of hereditary monarchy, and his belief that Americans should take up arms against the English government. The Declaration of Independence articulates the principles of the American Revolution. This program discusses natural rights, government by consent, the social contract, the difference between alienable and inalienable rights, and the right of revolution against oppressive governments. The Giants of Political Thought Series offers an easy and entertaining way to broaden your mind and your awareness of great ideas.
