WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Thomas Paine is a man largely forgotten and greatly misunderstood yet his ideas about democracy, equality, slavery, social programs and morality were truly revolutionary. He changed the world, only to have the world he changed turn its back on him. He ignited revolutions but died largely ignored and distained, yet when he was writing he was at the epicenter of world events and literally transforming nations through his words. He was a true man of the Enlightenment and thrilled by an old world shedding its skin and looking, above all, to justice and equality.
