The Rights of Man
Rights of Man (1787), by Thomas Paine, posits that popular political revolution is permissible when a government does not safeguard its people, their natural rights, and their national interests. It defends the French Revolution against Edmund Burke's anti-democratic attack upon popular government in Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790).
