Explanation:
"Burke's belief that society depends on what he called'prejudice', that is, on instinctive feelings of love and loyalty, plus his rejection of the central place which revolutionary
thinkers had given to reason, led to his critique of natural law and natural rights. Basically he seems to be saying that communities are held together not by self-interest but by the
feeling that we are members one of another; communal
feeling is everything and reason is insignificant. Hence, he
rejected the appeal made by the revolutionaries to abstract
individual rights. For Burke the important contrast is not
between repressive governments and the abstract rights of the rational individual, but between the beautiful order of society bonded by loyalties and 'prejudice', and 'a disbanded race of deserters and vagabonds'. In rejecting natural law he shared the conservatism of Hume, but his reverential attitude to the state is much more like Rousseau than Hume."

And sorry, he was born in Ireland, not in England.
