Who We Are
The name of a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine, which inspired the people of the American colonies to stand up for their freedom and independence in 1775, now inspired the title of this publication.
Then, Paine saw the need for self government and liberty, which were under siege in a time when a foreign entity had the last say in the public affairs of the land – principles that turned said land into a most successful nation, where liberty thrived while they were honored.
Now, Common Sense is more than the title of a book. It is a term applied to policies and ideas that promote solutions to the pressing issues of our time, conclusions arrived at by learning from the past and taking a rational approach to the things at hand. Common Sense is political sanity, it means admitting what is wrong instead of concealing, applying solutions based on what is proven to work, not blind devotion to ideologies and dogma. Common Sense is also journalistic honesty, willingness to debate and contribute to the preservation and furthering of what makes us great.
Today, the call for liberty, identity and independence returns to the old world, where we heard it and decided to spread the word.
We are young men and women, here to combine Young, Conservative and European grassroots journalism to offer a platform to views and voices that are seldom heard in the contemporary media landscape.
As my wish was to serve an oppressed people, and assist in a just and good cause, I conceived that the honor of it would be promoted by my declining to make even the usual profits of an author.— Thomas Paine
