Warm-Up 1/12(In CompositionNotebook)

How did Edmund Burke describe the relationship between the state and individual?

How do you think Walter Lippmann felt about “big government?”

Did these authors agree about what a government should provide?

  • “Where the state begins, individual liberty ceases, and vice-versa. Government is a contrivance of human wisdom to provide for human wants”

    • Edmund Burke, Reflection on the Revolution in France (1790)

  • “It is perfectly true that government is best which governs the least. It is equally true that government is best which provides most.”

    • Walter Lippmann, A Preface to Politics, 1913.
