Reflections on the Revolution in France is a slashing attack on the French Revolution
by one of Britain's most famous statesmen. Liberty and social order, Burke argues, are maintained by the
traditional rights and duties embedded in custom and law. And when these traditions are overthrown in
revolutions, society is threatened with chaos, bloodshed and despotism.
In The Rights of Man, Thomas Paine argues that the French Revolution was based on the same principles
as the American Revolution: natural rights, an implied "social contract", and the right of revolution against
oppressive governments. Paine, unlike Burke, sees government as the primary threat to social order. He has
little regard for traditional institutions, if those institutions are oppressive and unjust.
