The Rights of Man is a 1791 philosophical political treatise by English-American political revolutionary and Founding Father Thomas Paine. Comprising thirty-one articles, Paine argues that political revolution is moral, even necessary, when a government fails to protect its citizens’ basic rights. Paine argues that whenever a government takes an action that does not proceed from democratic governance, it is within the bounds of citizen’s natural rights to abolish or change its order. Freemasonry was famously involved in both of the great revolutions of the Enlightenment Era, the French and the American, both struggles that Thomas Paine participated in and in which the Freemasonic ideals of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity led to the first true democracies ever established on Earth.Title Page
