Definition: Slippery Slope is a logical fallacy when a person asserts that a certain set of events will inevitably occur without any justifications or further reasoning. Slippery Slope focuses the readers attention onto extreme hypotheticals rather than logical explanations. This fallacy appeals to the reader by leveraging fear. Overall, the authors argument jumps to conclusion with unsubstantiated proof of potential events.

Example: "We're spending too much money on your school tuition, before you know it we'll be broke and on the streets!" Jumping to a potential conclusion and skipping multiple hypothetical steps to an extreme situation that has low stakes of actually happening.
