- "The Science of Government Founded on Natural Law", 1841 (Publisher: Dean & Trevett, New York) This work is believed by many to have been the direct model for the 1848 "Communist Manifesto" of Karl Marx & Frederick Engels. Although he wrote a few other works, he is remembered today for this one. A popular story is that he and Horace Greeley were members of a secret society named "Illuminati".


He was involved in the creation of the "Loco Foco Party" (AKA: "Equal Rights Party") in 1835.

He served in the New York State Assembly from 1837 to 1840.
