The 3-phase pattern of history.
In the annals of history, there is a recurring theme—a pattern that marks the ascent of any epochal revolution.
This pattern has three distinct phases: ridicule, contestation, and the eventual acceptance of the once-radical concept as an irrefutable norm. It is a journey that profound change, both social and technological, must undertake. The path from the margins to the mainstream, from skepticism to certainty, is one of the most compelling stories of human progress.
The fe-Commerce revolution: a groundbreaking transformation
At this very moment, a groundbreaking transformation is sweeping the landscape of commerce worldwide. It’s a paradigm shift that promises to redefine the way we conduct business and empower individuals across the globe.
This revolution, which we call Fe-Commerce, is poised to become the standard of commerce, at least in the free countries. It is a movement that seeks to elevate lives, bridge gaps, and create a more inclusive and prosperous world.
The three stages of all great movements
Yet, like all great movements before it, fe-Commerce must traverse these same three stages: ridicule, contestation, and acceptance. The pioneers, those who had the foresight to recognize this trend before the masses, will be hailed as the driving force behind this revolution’s genesis. Their unwavering belief and determination gave birth to a new way of thinking about commerce, one that places people at the center and envisions a future where everyone can partake in the global marketplace.
The echoes of Fe-Commerce will resonate across
Soon, the echoes of Fe-Commerce will resonate across television screens, radio waves, and newsprint. As with any substantial shift in society, the media will play a pivotal role in influencing public perception during these three crucial stages.
- In the first phase of ridicule, revolutionary ideas are often met with skepticism, portrayed as absurd, or deemed impractical. The media may cast doubts on the feasibility of these concepts, discouraging early public support.
- In the second phase, contestation, the media assumes a role as a platform for debate and discussion. It allows different perspectives to be heard, fostering critical thinking. The public begins to engage in a collective dialogue, and the revolution is dissected from various angles, exposing its strengths and vulnerabilities.
- The third stage is that of acceptance. This is where the media can be a catalyst for change, legitimizing the revolution and portraying it as a necessary and inevitable shift in the prevailing paradigm.
A few examples?
Here are a few examples of revolutionary concepts and ideas that went through the stages of being ridiculed, contested, and eventually accepted as obvious:
- Ridiculed: In the early days, many dismissed the internet as a novelty with limited practical use.
- Contested: As the internet grew, there were concerns about its safety, relevance, and potential impact on society.
- Accepted: Today, the internet is an integral part of daily life, connecting people worldwide for communication, business, and information.
- Ridiculed: When smartphones were first introduced, they were seen as expensive gadgets with limited functionality.
- Contested: As they gained popularity, there were debates about their impact on social interactions and privacy.
- Accepted: Smartphones are now indispensable for communication, productivity, and entertainment.
- Electric Cars:
- Ridiculed: Electric cars were initially ridiculed as impractical, expensive, and limited by short battery life.
- Contested: Skeptics questioned their environmental benefits and charging infrastructure.
- Accepted: Electric cars are gaining popularity as more efficient and sustainable alternatives to traditional vehicles.
- Renewable Energy:
- Ridiculed: Renewable energy sources like solar and wind were initially considered too expensive and unreliable.
- Contested: Critics debated their efficiency, intermittency, and long-term viability.
- Accepted: Renewable energy is now widely adopted as a clean and sustainable energy solution.
- Social Media:
- Ridiculed: Early social media platforms were dismissed as frivolous and time-wasting.
- Contested: Concerns about privacy, cyberbullying, and addiction led to debates about their impact.

- Ridiculed: Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies were initially ridiculed as a niche and volatile form of digital money.

These examples illustrate how revolutionary concepts often face initial resistance, but with time, evidence, and adaptation, they become widely accepted and integrated into society.
The process of moving from ridicule to acceptance is a common pattern in the evolution of transformative ideas.
