a: Ecology ~
b: universal suffrage

What: "Ecology is like universal suffrage or the 40-hour week: at first, the ruling elite and the guardians of social order regard it as subversive, and proclaim that it will lead to the triumph of anarchy and irrationality. Then, when factual evidence and popular pressure can no longer be denied, the establishment suddenly gives way - what was unthinkable yesterday becomes taken for granted today, and fundamentally nothing changes."
