Resumé

How is rhetorical history used to legitimate new industries that are considered morally dubious or even reprehensible by many stakeholders? This paper seeks to answer this question and in so doing produce an explanatory model that builds on the existing research on rhetorical history (Suddaby et al., 2010) and which also takes advantage of new theoretical advances in management on temporality. We present three short case studies of emerging industries that used rhetorical history to defend themselves against critics that regarded the very existence of such industries as morally objectionable. The existentially controversial industries in question are: the for-profit private military sector, the Canadian recreational marijuana, and the BitCoin cryptocurrency ecosystem.
