If you have some time this Sunday, have a listen to Christopher Hitchens hour lecture on Thomas Paine.
Thomas Paine was a citizen of a free world. He was true to his convictions whether pamphlets decrying British rule over the American colonies and writing Common Sense for independence or The Rights of Man about the issue with religion and the enlightenment values of freedom.
The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
Brief edited extract from Hitchens take on The Rights of Man book here.
