Tom Paine Sues Facebook

“The ghost of Thomas Paine is suing Instagram and Facebook. Mr. Paine, the eloquent champion of the American Revolution who penned such zeitgeist-capturing volumes as Common Sense, The American Crisis, and The Rights of Man, is going to court to protest the indignity that these social-media forums recently inflicted upon his spirit by censoring his statement that ‘He who dares not offend cannot be honest.'” (12/31/21)
