Tell Us What YOU Think!

Thomas Paine was, at different times in his life, much loved and much hated. He was also greatly misunderstood. Even though the script for this film was well researched and there were five scholars overseeing the work, we anticipate lots of different opinions about this story. Please use the form below and send them to us and as long as they are not violent or obscene, and contain no advertising, we will post them here! We would love to see debate between all of you who have seen the film on public television, on a DVD or streamed. Paine was fighting for his understanding of true democracy and equality, and now we want to hear yours!
