Pride and Prejudice are currently at the top of the tree and are the two leading combatants in the Red corner; in the Blue corner we have Insight and Intuition. The ensuing duel takes place before our very eyes, yet the advantages of Blue are not so easy to recognize for all. No matter how attractive it appears to those on the edge, those prepared (or most desperate) to take the necessary chances and adopt alternative visions, do not expect anything more than ridicule to begin with; and be sure that Pride and Prejudice will be right behind any attackers who will all too readily follow their masters orders to get that reward, the "little biscuit".
As the battle commences the early movers quick to recognize potential enjoy a wave that develops in favor of the Blue, it will rise or fall depending on its appeal, yet if it gets anywhere close to Pride and Prejudice they will become Red with anger-fire-lava, and then the real battle will commence against Blue ice-angst-ire. Not on the playing field in full view but backstage is where the action will take place. Pride and Prejudice will use every little trick in the "Art of War" to keep the emerging Blue buds from gaining any light.
Blue bolt out of the ordinary and rise or fall depending upon the hunger and thirst that Insight and Intuition quenches. Yet there are those so ignorant and enslaved to their masters that despite the gravity before their own eyes will continuously fail time and again to recognize truth and innovation no matter how many times it is demonstrated or logically explained.
The only way to effect real change on a global scale is through sheer determined Insight, Intuition, elegance, demonstration and healthy competition with the old order. Only when the grass looks greener, the food smells sweeter and the partygoers next door are clearly seen to be having more fun will the most ardent objectors cut their chains from their masters and readily gatecrash the party too. This is the real process of change and was most systematically dissected in "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions" by Thomas S. Kuhn.
