Example text

Paine was elated by exactly what horrified Burke舒the possibility that the British might follow the French and discard their ancient institutions. Precedent reigned supreme with Burke; only arrangements that had stood the test of time deserved respect. Challenged by criticism of a restricted suffrage, English leaders had conjured up the idea that those who couldn舗t vote had given their 舠tacit agreement舡 to the laws. It was exactly this ingenious concept that the Americans had rejected. The lever Paine chose to upend Burke舗s position was the irrationality of allowing one generation to make political arrangements in perpetuity, leaving the living tied to the compromises of their ancestors.

Seriously ill, he stayed at Monroe舗s home to recuperate and finished writing the second part of The Age of Reason (1796). Paine remained in France for seven more years, fearing arrest or seizure should he attempt a return to England or America. In 1797 he published his last major work, Agrarian Justice, and for the next few years attempted to advise Napoleon Bonaparte. But life abroad had become less and less tenable, and when Paine舗s old friend Thomas Jefferson, newly elected president of the United States, offered him safe passage on an American warship, he returned to his adopted country in 1802.

Both Washington and Franklin were now dead. Partisan warfare between the Federalists and their Democratic-Republican opponents had replaced the cooperation among the patriot leaders during the Revolution. Jefferson舗s election had been accompanied by a campaign filled with vituperation. Publication of The Age of Reason, which Paine had dedicated to the citizens of the United States, had wrecked his reputation, especially among the Federalists. 舡12 The Federalists convinced themselves that the success of the Jeffersonians was ephemeral and that people would come to their senses soon.
