revolutionary ideology must be denounced!!
Throne and altar
Edmond Burke
osupported t he American Revolutionaries and social progress, supported the Irish
Catholics [argues in Br Parl that they needed to be given a better deal]
oin 1790: a friend asked him to pen his opinion on the FR and to pass a judgement on
years development his response shocked his liberal colleagues and friends
he wrote: denounced the entire rev (Amer or Fr?) in the most vehement and
straightforward manner no if or but
nothing positive in the Revolution
argued for the method of social changes the Rev, like the Fr one, would alway
lead to the potential for a tremendous bloodletting and carnage and ultimately
the stage for a dictatorship
this was almost an entire decade before Napoleon his brilliance was
clearly showing where the FR would go
reason is an abstract concept because every individual has a different standard
you cant universalize reason [depended on class, education, etc and since mo
people lacked this [esp education] it was impossible)
instead of a revolutionary movement we have to go back to traditions- to
prejudice!
dont have to have a reason
slow, gradual change without altering entire social and class structure an
the political landscape
by t he time he came out, he was denounced by all his colleagues who claimed
was a secret Catholic
a decade af ter his critics agreed that he was right
not about stopping change but swallowing change and going on with a health
society
