A great quote from Thomas Paine about why we should all give back to society.

Of all the ‘Founding Fathers’, Thomas Paine is my favorite. A revolutionary of brilliance and conviction, an advocate of reason and freethinking, and against institutionalized religion; I cannot think of any other Founder that is more relevant today. If you haven’t read him yet, begin with ‘Common Sense’ 

Yes, please read the primary source, folks. That would make my year. Truth.
