So Far: Jessie rather likes Paine's words, and how easy they are to understand, especially for a lower middle-class, working guitar like himself. Unfortunately, since Jessie is a guitar and therefore cannot read for himself, I must do so, and though I love Paine, there is some rather confusing syntax (it was written like forever and a half ago, probably before dinosaurs; I suspect this Thomas Paine is a cultured and revolutionary Pterodactyl). It is a short essay but because Jessie does not understand the meaning of getting to the point, I've had to read through the tough, dry introduction by the editor. Sigh.
A Sneak Peek:
Time makes more converts than reason.Oh boy does Jessie love this. No amount of logic can immediately lift someone out of believing anything at all. But time begets the ultimate experience; it teaches us even as we are unwilling to learn. Jessie really loves the political and social bits of this book and it's a must read for any cultured human being (just kidding, but it's a kicker to cite it in most history classes and it's written by a pterodactyl!).
