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

    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.
