Thomas Paine was a supporter of the American Revolution, and having independence from Britain. The Crisis is a selection of writings by Paine to get people to support independence from Britain.
Although the government, or any other hindrance can take away your fire, which is liberty, peoples desire for liberty refuels it.

This idea of true patriotism is still true and applicable in today's world.
