    Genetic isn’t the most interesting argument to me, as it seems to be a sub of the ad-hominem. Would love to hear your take on the slippery slope argument. I hear those ALL the time.

      I only had three to work with. I’m finishing up the last today.

      Slippery slope arguments are totally legit as long as you can establish a lack of philosophical footholds. People will justify any behavior they see as being in their best interests as long as there isn’t a strongly understood reason not to.
