Rights of Man is unquestionably one of the great classics on the subject of democracy. Employing direct, vehement prose, Paine defends popular rights, national independence, revolutionary war, and economic growth, all of which were seen in his time to be dangerous and even seditious issues. Paine’s vast influence is due largely to his eloquent literary style, with its poignant metaphors, vigor, and rational directness. With Rights of Man, Paine defended the dignity of men in all countries against anyone who considered the average person to be merely one of the “swinish multitude.” In the United States, it fostered sympathy for France, while in Britain it became a classic document in the working-class movement.
