Introduction: Thomas Paine was an English American writer of essays and pamphlets in the 18th century. He was born in England and moved to the American colonies in 1774 after Benjamin Franklin encouraged him to. His most notable work was called “Common Sense” which was printed in January of 1776, a fifty-page pamphlet that inspired the colonies to fight for their independence. Prior to its publication, the colonies had been in revolt for a few months against England, namely in the battle of Lexington & at Concord.

Brittany Scarbrough DE English 101-Tioga High School 30 November 2015 Argumentative Essay The Age of Majority Are you an adult when you are no longer living under your guardians roof or is it when you pay your first bill?

18 the age of adulthood In life it seems that as you get older you start to develop a sense of responsibility and to prepare for adulthood. It’s logical to say when a child learns how to take care of themselves that this can only help them because it helps them be ready for the real world if they already know how to be independent and manage responsibilities of their own.

We can clearly see this in “ What is The Age of Responsibility?” by Alan Greenblatt , when he shows reasons for which to let 18 be the age of responsibility.
