Every one should read this . The declaration and the conclusion , if nothing else . Any one going into politics at any level should have the declaration framed on their wall to remind them they are there to serve ; not to self serve . The ideas and principals in this book are as relevant today as they were in the 18th century ; if not more so . Principals and ideas can, and are corrupted by interpretation ; but that doesn't mean the ideas are any less valid . Mr Paine has succinctly laid out the principals of freedom , fairness and responsibility . Thing we should all be reminded of every now and again.
