Read the selection below from Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense:”
Explain, in detail, the problems that Paine has with Monarchy and hereditary succession. How do you think this document would have influenced Americans who were trying to decide whether the colonies should become independent or remain within the British Empire? Use the document for your answer.
The requirement of my instructor is as following:
1. Even when I ask “what do you think,” I’m not asking for your “opinion,” I’m asking you to offer a reasoned argument based off of the materials in this course.
2. These answers, while using the material from the book or the films, need to be in your own words. Do not cut and paste from a website. There is no reason to use outside materials at all and I strongly urge you not to do that–paraphrasing without providing citation is plagiarism.
Thank you very much!
