Quote of the Week: Edmund Burke, “An Appeal from the New to the Old Whigs”

Edmund BurkeWe have obligations to mankind at large, which are not in consequence of any special voluntary pact […] Our country is not a thing of mere physical locality. It consists, in large measure, in the ancient 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 our country is a social, civil relation.

▪ Edmund Burke, “An Appeal from the New to the Old Whigs” (1 August 1791) in Robert Smith (ed.) Edmund Burke on Revolution (Harper Touchbooks, 1986) extract from page 163.
