He was brought up believing "one man can make a difference", and this is just what he did. Integrity has a large effect on what we think, say and do, it is through King’s thoughts and actions that enabled so many people to have trust and faith in him. Through King’s integrity he believed that America, the most powerful and richest nation in the world will lead the way to a revolution of values. This revolution will change the way society views itself, shifting from a "thing-orientated" society to a "person-orientated" society. When this occurs, King believed that racism will be capable of being conquered and this nation will be "Free at last."
He refuted the idea of the perpetuation of monarchies in the Rights of Man, and eventually meets his careers end with The Age of Reason. Thomas Pain sent letters to Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and many others trying to persuade the nation’s leaders to follow his ideas. Thomas Pain spent his life writing about politics, and political theory and had a massive impact on what will become American culture and way of life, because everything he wrote was to promote the ideas of freedom, equality, and individualism. Thomas Paine believed certain freedoms were innate and others were earned. He believed in the freedoms of the individual but not the freedoms of one man to control another.

He explained his strategy as to how to come to power and had effectively done so. He had won the people through the promises he had made and the dedication he had showed to fulfilling it. He had a huge amount of help through his propaganda as seen in the Olympics of 1933. He had also to an extent maintained control within the country through his effective uses of storm troopers and his loyal supporters as his financial aid.
The reason for this might have been because he was yet, to be a famous author or because he lived within the shadow of Emerson. However, this essay that was written brought forward so many great ideas and perspective to the people who will soon read it. This essay sparked and enlightened some of the greatest civil rights activists in history. From Ghandi who was the leader in freeing India from British rule and was arrested for his peaceful protest yet, he did not lose hope or give in due to Thoreau’s essay. The next great activist to be inspired by Thoreau was Martin Luther King Jr. who was the voice of the civil rights movement in the late 1960’s.
However, the differences can be seen in the writing styles and overall tone of the work. Paine becomes more of a salesman, trying to sell his readers to his thoughts on the government of Great Britain, though not completely becoming a force on the matter. Jefferson maintains a very up-front approach, simply overwhelming his readers with numerous examples and energetic voice, concluding with the 'final word' on the matter. However much the style differs, though, the two documents were equally compelling and served to motivate a nation into fighting for their independence. Bibliography: Jefferson, Thomas.

I. Introduction “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” (“Declaration”). These words, spoken by a wise and prominent man by the name of Thomas Jefferson, were greatly influenced by the Enlightenment’s most profound philosopher, John Locke. Since the beginning of Enlightenment to the 21st century, Locke’s ideas have been behind countless innovators, philosophers, and politicians; including our very own Founding Fathers. From being an enlightened philosopher to creating bold, new ideas, John Locke is the single most influential person in history because he helped establish the basis of modern philosophical empiricism, he was a staunch defender of the power of the people, and he contributed in the social shift into Enlightenment.
