New Rule (#38)

I’ve added Rule 38 to my Rules page: There are no slippery slopes, only slippery people.

That is to say, slippery slopes are fallacious reasoning, and I believe one uses a slippery slope argument only because one has ulterior motives for arguing against a claim.  Far better, I say, to be clear and honest about those motives.
