Sample text

But his political ideas were completely a priori, and he was incapable of modifying them to suit the facts. 3 In any case, he never seriously considered the inherent problems of democratic government. What he was really interested in throughout his whole life was exposing, denouncing, and overthrowing despotisms, that is, governments not constituted according to his own theory. When he condemns tyranny, injustice, war, violation of the rights of man, oppressive taxation, he always attributes them to the operations of monarchy, aristocracy, or some kind of illegitimate power: in other words, to a defect in the form of government.

What he was really interested in throughout his whole life was exposing, denouncing, and overthrowing despotisms, that is, governments not constituted according to his own theory. When he condemns tyranny, injustice, war, violation of the rights of man, oppressive taxation, he always attributes them to the operations of monarchy, aristocracy, or some kind of illegitimate power: in other words, to a defect in the form of government. Hence to get rid of these abuses of power, it should be sufficient to set up the correct form of government: a republic.

2 This argument is for Paine absolutely decisive. S The mixed form of government is dealt with in summary fashion. A mixture of republic and monarchy is simply a mixture of good and evil. The repUblican part is good, and ought to be extended to the whole; the monarchy is merely a corrupting influence, which ought to be done away with. " 4 If the king interferes in the government he is a despot: if he does not, he is a useless expense: In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which, in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears.
