True Conservatism is NOT Nationalism

The greatest of eighteenth-century thinkers, Edmund Burke.

True conservatism is NOT nationalism. Nor can it ever be, except as a perversion and adulteration.

“Our country is not a thing of mere physical locality. It consists, in a great measure, in the antient order into which we are born. We may have the same geographical situation, but another country; as we may have the same country in another soil. The place that determines our duty to country is a social, civil relation.”–Edmund Burke, 1791
