One of the most prominent examples of resistance to absolute monarchy came, in England, where King and Parliament struggled to determine the roles each should play in governing England (Duiker 2013). After the death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603, the Stuart line of rulers was inaugurated with the accession to the throne of Elizabeth’s cousin, King James VI of Scotland. James I (1603-1625) espoused the divine right of kings, a viewpoint that alienated Parliament, which had grown accustomed under previous rulers to act on the premise that monarch and Parliament together ruled England as balanced polity (Duiker 2013).

Paine discusses that America is so successful and accepting because of the system of government they established, which provided organization and protection of rights. At this time (1791), England, for example, was held under the power of a very strong King, whether they approved of his thoughts and actions or not. There was no organization or protection of rights in this system, due to the fact the King did whatever he pleased and did not care to regard or listen to anything the British citizens had to say. America was held under the King’s reigns for only a very short time before declaring independence on the fateful day of July 4, 1776. From then on out, and continuing today, Americans are given the choice in who their ruler will be.
