If memory serves Burke also supported at least indirectly the American Revolution in 1776! Spoke on behalf of the American colonies position in Parliment.

William Cummings: He did in fact support the American colonists in their disagreements with the King.



Thanks! I'll give this a look.


Thank you, Foresman. This looks like the perfect follow-up to _Why Orwell Matters_by Christopher Hitchens.

Would Edmund Burke have supported the EPA ? I recall President Nixon started the EPA . It used to be a rock ribbed conservative value that clean air & water must be maintained for all citizens . I will put this book on Burke as first on my reading list once the summer tourist season is over here in Central Texas.
