Wha Wants Me

by Isaac Cruikshank (British artist)

This British cartoon depicts the writer Thomas Paine, whose pamphlets helped spur the American Revolution. Paine holds before him a scroll listing some of his works (including "Common Sense" and the "Rights of Man"). Behind his back, he carries a sack of weapons. In Paine's right hand is a pen, in his left, a dagger.
