What did JA think of her society?

The question is, was JA a child of the Enlightenment? Did she seek balance and order and rational behaviour for her characters? Or did she seek to overthrow the rational and balanced? In my own humble view, JA thought that order was a large part of the problem with society.
By the way, Happy New Year, all. Hope you all had a good holiday. Anybody else get the six-volume boxed set of P&P for Christmas?
