In 1776, Thomas Paine anonymously produced Common Sense, a pamphlet advocating for colonial independence from Great Britain. If Paine’s revolutionary words had been revealed to the British authorities prior to their publication in the colonies, his writings most certainly would have resulted in his death. Paine insisted that British rule was directly responsible for nearly every problem in colonial society. Paine’s political views and his fellow revolutionaries’ actions led to the formation of a more perfect union. Today, that union is under attack.
Like Paine, Norman W. Holden is unabashed in his calling for renewed independence and a national uprising. For Love of Country: Common Sense 2.0 will strike at the nerve that troubles most all Americans. Sickened by our national complacency and polarization, a widening political divide, and our wayward government, Holden’s editorial and ultimate diagnosis for America may be a hard pill to swallow. With freedom at risk, Americans have little choice but to accept this cure.
“This is a wonderful little book. The author basically was updating Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” (1776), and he did an excellent job. In my opinion, this book should be required reading for every HS senior in America.”

“This book is about Common Sense – which was fought for during the American Revolution and which has gone up in smoke like a Police Station after an Antifa Rally.
This book, nor the subject matter (bringing back Common Sense, Human Flourishing, giving more power to the people and less to the Authoritarian State (Government)) will be surprising to Conservatives that have slowly watched the Decline of America and Her Values.
For readers that are concerned about everything happening in America and wondering what solutions are available, some of the answers can be found in For Love of Country.
The book is engaging and lively. Highly recommend!”

“Holden has provided the American people with a gift. He writes with candor about difficulties in our nation that must be corrected if she is to thrive again. Great challenges!”
