Brilliant

Thomas Paine presents the proper role of republican government, the effects of central banking, and the hazards of government issued paper money in a clear and articulate manner. While not as "main stream" as other notable founders, Paine is credited with influencing the general public in declaring independence. He has a firm grasp on the subject matter at hand, and speaks as a true revolutionary, on the level of Thomas Jefferson or French political philosopher Frederick Bastiat. This work by Paine is a must read for any freedom loving person.
