I'm really stuck on these two questions so I wanted to know if anyone could help?

explain how Edmund Burke
a. fits into both traditional and neoconservatism
b. agrees/ disagrees with conservative philosophy of Thomas Hobbes

for a. if you could outline the differences and similarities of the two political movements' ideas that would be great!

Okay so I'm not a politics student but I did cover Burke during A Level history.

One of Burke's main principles was that the state should be as small as possible correct?

I can add on Hobbes. Hobbes and Burke both believed that any society begins with a social contract and when people sign it (it means, create a state) they are no longer have their natural rights as they transfer them to the state itself.
