According to the Spectator the PM is right - that ‘a state without the means of some change is without the means of its own conservation’

Interesting article by the Spectator on the third way that the PM is trying to navigate between the forces of nationalism, the benefits of capitalism and the impact of globalisation. It is an article worth a read. 
"Theresa May thinks that we have reached that moment with globalisation and 21st-century capitalism. At Davos last month, she quoted Burke again, reminding the gathered global elite that ‘a state without the means of some change is without the means of its own conservation’. She declared that this ‘great Conservative principle — change in order to conserve — is more important than ever in today’s complex geopolitical environment’.
It is more important than ever because of the growth of aggressive nationalism. If their concerns are not addressed, more and more Western voters will turn to aggressive nationalist leaders. Add to that an international system already having to deal with a revanchist Russia and a rising China and the global order starts to look unstable."
