Excellent piece, though I think the writer could've made his point more bluntly, which is (I think): Hume didn't believe we can know anything, so if we can't know anything, we better preserve our traditions since they developed over time through forces we can't know, so we best not mess with them.
I gotta read more Hume. He was the postmodernist of his day: skeptical of all knowledge. But he came down firmly on The Right, which is anathema to the postmodernist.
