No doubt, most of you have heard the boiling frog story. Per Wikipedia:
“The boiling frog story is a widespread anecdote describing a frog slowly being boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability of people to react to significant changes that occur gradually.”
This metaphor is a great illustration of what is known as ‘Incrementalism.’
“Incrementalism can be defined as small changes that make way for a bigger overall change to get past unnoticed. A series of small steps toward an agenda would be less likely to be questioned than a large and swift change. An example could be the rise of gas prices, the company would only raise the price by a few cents every day, instead of a large change to a target price overnight. More people would notice and dispute a dramatic, 100% increase overnight, while a 100% increase over a span of a week would less likely be even noticed, let alone argued. This can be applied in many different ways, such as, economics, politics, a person’s appearance, or laws.
Incrementalism, while in some cases can be beneficial, it can also be very deceiving and destructive. In the long run, it will destroy this country. This web site will primarily focus on the tactics used by the progressive/secularist and political left to further their agenda through the use of incrementalism in politics, religion, and education.
