Common Sense

Originally Written By Thomas Paine

by Christopher Scott View author's profile page


Common Sense by Thomas Paine is the most compelling case for freedom ever made. It's the most influential book in American History. It's not just a book for Americans but a case for humanity and it's ideas are as relevant today as ever. There's just one problem. Published in 1776 it was written in Old English and it could very well be another language for someone trying to read it today. The original manuscript is nearly impossible to understand. For the first time ever it's been translated into modern English so that everyone can read and understand it. It's a book that offers nothing more than simple facts, plain arguments and commonsense. Some people won't agree with the principles, but it doesn't make them any less true today than they were when it was originally written.


This is the translated book Common Sense by Thomas Paine, translated to modern English by Christopher Scott.

If you've ever tried to read Common Sense by Thomas Paine you know it's nearly impossible. It was written in Old English nearly 250 years and the language then was completely different than it is today. It's practically a different language. This translation by Christopher Scott keeps the original meaning but written in modern English so you can understand it fully.

It's the strongest case for freedom ever made and a must read for anyone who wants to understand what freedom and government are supposed to be. Written in plain language everyone can understand it explains the natural relationship between government and people. 

This timeless book is also available in hardcover HERE.
