You’ve heard it repeated endlessly. It’s just a slippery slope from this to that. It’s that diplomatic way of saying “Well, I can’t find a good reason to object to that any longer, so I’ll blame it on what could possibly happen, but isn’t happening now.” We hear it with charity, gay rights, politics, drugs, all manner of issues. Don’t be fooled. It’s fear-mongering. Plain and simple fear-mongering. If you’re in fear of a slippery slope that you could fall down, just remember: if you’re can slip down the mountain, you’re already on the higher ground. The higher the ground you stand on, the farther down a slope you have the potential to fall. There is no plateau. There is only the summit, the slope, and the valley. So, don’t abandon the high ground to slum on the bottom to avoid any chance of a slippery slope. Dig your heels in. Brave that slippery slope with the satisfaction of knowing that the only place without the possibility of falling is the bottom of a slippery slope!
