The paragraph below appears at the beginning of Common Sense by Thomas Paine.

I really need help on these questions the prompt is: The paragraph below appears at the beginning of Common Sense by Thomas Paine. 

“Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour; a long habit of not thinking a thing WRONG, gives it a superficial appearance of being RIGHT, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.” 


Briefly paraphrase Paine’s statement and then discuss his observation with respect to two examples from the twentieth or twenty-first century.
