Contrary To Progressive Thinking There is Wisdom From the Past

Birthplae of Independent Conservatism


The more things change the more they stay the same. Or so it seems. Thomas Paine, a common man and yet a great thinker seems to have had it about right. And just imagine, as far back as 1791.
"If, from the more wretched parts of the old world, we look at those which are in an
advanced stage of improvement, we still find the greedy hand of government thrusting
itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping the spoil of the
multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to furnish new pretenses for revenues
and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without
tribute." --Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1791
Okay, go ahead progressives, refute the wisdom herein presented.
