The aim of this paper is to outline and compare the land ownership, land taxes and citizens' dividend proposals by Thomas Paine and Thomas Spence. This ground rent would take the form of a tax per year of 10 per cent on inheritances. As a result, there would have been common ownership of land and revenue derived from land would be administered by the parishes and distributed to everyone equally. In assessing the two proposals using the citizens' dividend criterion, each proposal has consistent and inconsistent elements. It can be argued that the two proposals are primitive versions of citizens' dividend as espoused today. The paper contributes to knowledge regarding the debate at the time.

His argument begins with more general, theoretical reflections about government and religion, then progresses onto the specifics of the colonial situation. Paine begins by distinguishing between government and society. Society, according to Paine, is everything constructive and good that people join together to accomplish. Government, on the other hand, is an institution whose sole purpose is to protect us from our own vices. Government has its origins in the evil of man and is therefore a necessary evil at best.

Rights of Man

Although little used today, pamphlets were an important medium for the spread of ideas in the 16th through 19th centuries. This new world hath been the asylum for the persecuted lovers of civil and religious liberty from every part of Europe. Hither they have fled, not from the tender embraces of the mother, but from the cruelty of the monster; and it is so far true of England, that the same tyranny which drove the first emigrants from home, pursues their descendants still.
