ARRTOSJ Presents “Thomas Paine: Architect of Cooperative Individualism”
Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7:15 pm
The American Revolution Round Table of South Jersey (ARRTOSJ) will have their next meeting on April 25, in Meeting Rm. C at 7:15 in the Voorhees branch of the Camden County Library. Please note that the meeting time has been moved up so business can be discussed before the presentation. Please RSVP if you plan to attend, so they have enough chairs for everyone.
Ed Dodson will make a powerpoint-based presentation titled, “Thomas Paine: Architect of Cooperative Individualism.” It covers the essentials of Paine’s life and the key principles embraced in his writings.
Thomas Paine is best known for writing “Common Sense” and “The Crisis.” Few people are aware of the eventful life he led, and his philosophy of “cooperative individualism.”
Questions and discussion are encouraged during the presentation. For a deeper understanding of Paine and his ideas, Ed has a Youtube video in two parts at these links:
Ed is a long-time member and the current President of Thomas Paine Friends, a national membership organization devoted to educating the public on the life and many intellectual contributions of Thomas Paine. Ed is a graduate of Shippensburg and Temple Universities. For many years he taught political economy at the Philadelphia extension of the Henry George School of Social Science. He now serves as a volunteer instructor of political economy and history with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, at Temple University, and the Learning Is For Everyone program at Rowan/Burlington County College. He also produces an annual analysis on the U.S. economy and society as a public service, available to subscribers without charge.
Ed’s presentation promises to be as interesting and engaging as Thomas Paine himself.
