Sintesi dell'editore

Common Sense examines how Americans defended the right to resist unjust laws, and how this right of resistance was transformed into a right of revolution. It examines Thomas Paine's views on the difference between society and government, his defense of republican government, his total rejection of hereditary monarchy, and his belief that Americans should take up arms against the English government.

The Declaration of Independence articulates the principles of the American Revolution. This audiobook discusses natural rights; government by consent; the social contract; the difference between alienable and inalienable rights; and the right of revolution against oppressive governments.

Not Common Sense

This book does not contain a reading of the Common Sense pamphlet but just a lecture about it. I need to learn to avoid this publisher. I did the same thing with those Shakespeare "unabridged" plays and Hobbes Leviathan that turned out to be an executive summary

Will read more of these presentations.

loved it. Listened to it in one sitting. Historical background of the Revolution is very well done.
