Reader comments about this quote:
Probably the most socialist comment I've read of Paine.
 -- Joe, Rochester, MI     
  •  
    One of the finest of quotations. How socialism is connected with the quote is beyond comprehension.
     -- Dick, Fort Worth     
  •  
    This is my philosophy in life. Joe doesn't even know the definition of Socialism. Especially when he compares it to China or the Soviet Union.

    I first saw this quote in Paris in 1965. Under the quote was the comment "Thomas Payne, British by birth, French by Decree, and American by choice"
