More Thomas Paine


From Rights of Man by Thomas Paine.

Government ought to be as much open to improvement as anything which appertains to man, instead of which it has been monopolised from age to age, by the most ignorant and vicious of the human race.  Need we any other proof of their wretched management, than the excess of debts and taxes with which every nation groans, and the quarrels into which they have precipitated the world?

Quarrels = wars

Excess debts and taxes = ways to pay for the quarrels.
