Question of the Day: AP US History
I have heard it asserted by some that, as America has flourished under her former connection with Great Britain, the same connection is necessary towards her future happiness, and will always have the same effect. Nothing can be more fallacious than this kind of argument. We may as well assert that, because a child had thrived upon milk, it is never to have meat, or that the first twenty years of our lives is to become a precedent for the next twenty. But even this is admitting more than is true. For I answer roundly that America would have flourished as much, and probably much more, had no European power taken any notice of her…
- Thomas Paine, Common Sense (1776)
This passage advocates which of the following ideas?
That the Americas should never have been colonized and Native American cultures would have continued to prosper without European influence
That the American colonies must declare independence from Great Britain in order to gain foreign support
That the American colonies have prospered with British assistance and, even though British financial support is no longer needed, diplomatic and trade relationships should be maintained
That the American colonies should declare independence from Great Britain and establish a new government based on Enlightenment ideals
That the American colonists should not try to emulate British culture, but should instead establish a separate identity not influenced by British fashion or trends
