Wise societies recognize that there are people naturally born to lead. Elevating those natural leaders, rather than suppressing them, will enable a society to thrive and flourish. Those leaders must work to elevate the State rather than themselves in turn.
Man has sought to define their Rights - Burke provides a road map for what is and is not a Right and the purpose of civil society and governments.
Burke believed that the State was a reflection of the moral state of the people and that God gave us the ability to His mind and will through man's years of learning and thinking.
Throughout his years, Edmund Burke generated a prolific library of writings that are foundational to Conservative thinking and kept England on course away from Revolution.
Man is a creature with a dual nature: an individual spirit that longs for a sense of connection to their fellow man. Conservatives celebrate that individual spirit but also seek to nurture a voluntary community built around shared principles, experiences, and a sense of something greater than the individual. The Radical seeks to destroy these communities at every chance they get. When the individual is isolated they are ripe to be exploited by the Radical's siren call of "community" which is nothing more than a despotic state of misery.
