Suffrage, political franchise, or simply franchise is the right to vote in public, political elections (although the term is sometimes used for any right to vote).[1][2][3] In some languages, and occasionally in English, the right to vote is called active suffrage, as distinct from passive suffrage, which is the right to stand for election.[4] The combination of active and passive suffrage is sometimes called full suffrage.[5] Suffrage

Paradigm Shift
A paradigm shift (also radical theory change),[1] a concept identified by the American physicist and philosopher Thomas Kuhn
Thomas Kuhn
(1922–1996), is a fundamental change in the basic concepts and experimental practices of a scientific discipline. Kuhn contrasted these shifts, which characterize a scientific revolution, to the activity of normal science, which he described as scientific work done within a prevailing framework (or paradigm). In this context, the word "paradigm" is used in its original Greek meaning, as "example". The nature of scientific revolutions has been studied by modern philosophy since Immanuel Kant
Immanuel Kant
used the phrase in the preface to his Critique of Pure Reason

(1781). He referred to Greek mathematics
