Fund To Begin the World Over Again


The film version of To Begin the World Over Again: the Life of Thomas Paine is funded and complete! NETA, the National Educational Telecommunications Association  will be distributing the film to Public Television stations next year, the Presidential election year!

However, if Thomas Paine’s story and vision excite you, join us in making a tax-deductable to take this story across America and the world.


Your contribution will:

1) Support the distribution of the film in America and worldwide.      

2) Support the development of a major Paine research website that will be available to educators and the public free of charge.       

3) Produce DVDs with sub-titles, initially in Spanish, other languages to follow.


Thank You!



"At a time when so many Americans feel disaffected by the political system, Ruskin has done us the great service of resurrecting the man who wrote and lived by the credo that “we have it in our power to begin the world over again.”

--- Hector Villagra, Executive Director, ACLU Foundation of Southern California
