Many people think of Thomas Paine as a Patriot, but if so then why did he "flee" during the war? Or did he"

Thomas Paine was a major influence of the American Revolution. He came to America in 1774. His pamphlet "Common Sense" sparked debate and excited the people to revolt.

If Thomas Paine had only written about political things, he would have been honored as a bold friend of human liberty. "These are the times that try men's souls," is the famous opening sentence of The Crisis, which he wrote while he was a soldier in George Washington's army.

What role does common sense play if a person has exceptional intelligence?

Common sense isn't always a result of a non-intelligent analysis - presumption and arrogance leads us to think that. Intelligence shows itself by discerning what's acceptable and getting new, logical, provable solutions whenever common sense fails. So, answering your question: common sense tickles the exceptionally intelligent brain, and this one answers the provocation (=accepts the challenge) by reflecting. In other words, common sense gives a lot of inputs. The non arrogant one might even conclude that common sense had... a sense, after all. ;)
