Social Studies Please HELP! Why was Thomas Paine’s pamphlet so popular with the colonists? The goals were clear, and it used common language. It proved that the colonists could rely on Britain. It showed he was a highly educated man with lofty ideals. It set up a government with multiple branches and balances.

    A. Common Sense was written in lay-men's terms so everyone could understand. The pamphlet was well distributed. Paine's political pamphlet brought the rising revolutionary sentiment into sharp focus by placing blame for the suffering of the colonies directly on the reigning British monarch, George III. First and foremost, Common Sense advocated an immediate declaration of independence, postulating a special moral obligation of America to the rest of the world. Not long after publication, the spirit of Paine's argument found resonance in the American Declaration of Independence. Written at the outset of the Revolution, Common Sense became the leaven for the ferment of the times. It stirred the colonists to strengthen their resolve, resulting in the first successful anticolonial action in modern history.
