Paine, America, and the "Modernization" of Political Consciousness
Jack P. Greene argues that Thomas Paine's larger significance can only be understood in terms of his contributions to the modernization of political consciousness that occurred during the last decades of the eighteenth century. More specifically, Greene contends that Paine played a key role in bringing about two crucial political developments: the mobilization of large segments of society that had previously been politically inert and the desacralization of the traditional political order.
