‎"The role of a conservative thinker is to reassure the people that their prejudices are true."

Roger Scruton said this speaking to the teenage Daniel Hannan. But Scruton does not seem to me a true conservative. He opposes immigration citing defends the principle of self-determination, an idea of the French Revolution. I am not comfortable with this. There are so many better arguments from Burke and de Maistre.
