Storyboard Text

  • You should get a job. 
  • Maybe I will be an editor.
  • I'm going to write about some political topics.
  • Don't use the word Independence. 
  • With the help of Franklin's introduction, Paine soon landed a job as the editor of a new magazine. He had already done some writing in England.
  • Rush doesn't scare me.
  • At first, Paine wrote articles mainly about cultural and scientific subjects. But he soon moved on to political topics.
  • Everyone has a copy of Common Sense.
  • Rush encouraged Paine to write a pamphlet on independence, though he cautioned him not to use that word. The idea of independence made many colonists uneasy
  •  It did not scare Paine, though. In October 1775, he began working on the essay he would call Common Sense.
  • The first edition sold out in days. Paine had more copies printed, and those sold out, too. Within a few months, readers had bought more than 120,000 copies of Common Sense. By the end of the year, 25 editions had been printed.
  • Paine's ideas on rights and liberty also had an influence on other countries, particularly France. In fact, Paine later moved to France to play a role in the French Revolution.
