He rightly characterized it as an improbable outcome of muddled thoughts on progress, coupled with a bad reading of history, specifically an ahistorical worship of the Greek city states (Constant 2003). Where he parted company with Burke was in his attitude to its future, a difference between the two men which exemplifies with startling clarity the difference between the liberal and the conservative. Constant, the liberal, cannot abandon his optimism. 10 The conservative Burke seems to have grasped the Revolution’s insidious potential for mutation and reproduction in Burke: The Contradictions of Benevolence 19 terms of a future template.

Nor did the nation achieve a proper equilibrium after 1660, under the restored monarchy in the hectic reign of Charles II (1660–85). The short reign of Charles’s younger brother James II (1685–88) had been even more troublesome; there was during his years on the throne an obvious desire by the royal family to revert to Catholicism. Burke regarded these travails with horror. He saw as exemplary the English political and constitutional Settlement of 1689–1701, with its artfully reconstituted distribution of powers between Commons, nobility and monarchy.

(Burke 1972b: 65) Burke regarded obstinacy as a vice, a point he also made clear in this same speech. Obstinacy in favour of the indefensible was unsound conservative politics: But among vices, there is none which the House abhors in the same degree with obstinacy.
