Social Justice(Ian Ruskin as Thomas Paine)



This is from a one man show that Australian actor Ian Ruskin(who also created a one-man show about the longshoreman's union founder Harry Bridges("FROM WHARF RATS TO LORDS OF THE DOCK") created about Thomas Paine. Ruskin put this together(I saw the entire play in Salem, Oregon, last week when Ruskin took it on a mini-tour)in response to the misuse of Paine's words by Tea Party types like Bob Basso...the person you see mis-performing Paine at the beginning of the clip.

5. 1789 the common people of France had a great revolution.

When we have Government - Property Taxes, Federal Budget, Social Security, Disability Insurance, Estate Taxes - by the People, for the People and of the People, we have peace and prosperity.
