As I have shown in my book Adam Smith's intellectual heritage goes much beyond what we now call Enlightenment.
Therefore when one talks about Smith's radicalism that must be taken into account.

Adam Smith, Radical and Egalitarian

"In this reexamination of the political legacy of Adam Smith, McLean argues that Smith was a radical egalitarian and that his work supported the ideas behind the French Revolution and his Theory of Moral Sentiments crystallized the radically egalitarian philosophy of the Scottish Enlightenment. Bringing Smith into full view, showing how much of modern economics and political science was influenced by the Scottish thinker, and locating his intellectual heritage firmly within the context of the Enlightenment, McLean addresses the international links between American, French, and Scottish histories of political thought."
