IMHO, this work is indispensable reading for political and cultural convervatives. It is (among other things) a devastating attack on the essential logic of the "Gallican" concept of liberty. Edmund Burke explodes the insane asylum that was revolutionary France -- its "pure democracy," its vaunted National Assembly, and the Terror and sheer national devastation that body wrought. And also details the means by which this enterprise was effected, and speculates as to its purposes.
This stuff was "mother's milk" to Marx. If you want to/need to converse with "liberals," socialists, and/or "progressives," arm yourself by reading Burke first. JMHO FWIW
