Short Synopsis
Thomas Paine's Rights of Man, a classic statement of faith in democracy, speaks on behalf of equality and supports social security for workers, public employment for those in need of work, and other social reforms.

Full Synopsis
Rights of Man presents an impassioned defense of the Enlightenment principles of freedom and equality that Thomas Paine believed would soon sweep the world. He boldly claimed, "From a small spark, kindled in America, a flame has arisen, not to be extinguished. Without winds its progress from nation to nation." Though many more sophisticated thinkers argued for the same principles and many people died in the attempt to realize them, no one was better able than Paine to articulate them in a way that fired the hopes and dreams of the common man and actually stirred him to revolutionary political action.
