Thomas Paines Common Sense provided some of the necessary arguments that helped to shape a nation Individuals residing within America were under the constant control of England before the Revolutionary War These people were not satisfied with the present state of the country but there was never anything uniting their common feelings These feelings were evident but out of fear nothing was being done to change the situation This pamphlet was in many peoples minds the driving force for revolution and freedom The allegiance that was given to England was then viewed as only a hindrance to the growing nation People were coming to the conclusion that the only country benefiting from the partnership was England England was receiving money services and goods from America for what amounts to nothing more than protection Many citizens believed that England viewed America in a favorable light and protected it because it was helping a growing nation In reality many came to the realization that England was protecting its own monetary interests While some view Paine as a rage filled inciter others would claim that his pamphlet united a nation and gave the people a reason to fight A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right and raises at first a formidable outcry in defiance of custom But the tumult soon subsides Time makes more converts than reason Paine This statement provides strength for the presentation of Paines later arguments on the subject It was his belief that America was being suffocated by England This process had taken little time to formulate and it was generally viewed as the normal way of life The fact that England was controlling a country of people who had left Europe due to persecution did not seem reasonable If the idea of control bothered people so much that they would leave why would they subject themselves to control from abroad
