Paine Justifies The Need For Separation Summary

75 Words1 Page
Paine justifies the need for separation by explaining that the colonies have little to gain from British rule.

He also stresses that, if they were to remain attached, the same problems they have had in the past will reappear. The conflict of British need for profit and the American desire for autonomy could only be ended by declaring independence.
