“It’s called gradualism because it gradually removes your freedoms”

Gradualism (in politics) is defined in Wikipedia as “the hypothesis that social change can be achieved in small, discrete increments rather than in abrupt strokes such as revolutions or uprisings.”

“It’s called ‘gradualism’.The ‘frog in the pot of gently warming analogy’. We have been successfully brainwashe” was posted on Twitter by Alan on June 5, 2009. “It’s called gradualism.  They take a small freedom. It doesn’t affect me. Ignore it. They keep repeating it. Soon your freedom is gone” was posted on Twitter by Don Green on October 11, 2015.

Wikipedia: Gradualism
Gradualism, from the Latin gradus ("step"), is a hypothesis, a theory or a tenet assuming that change comes about gradually or that variation is gradual in nature and happens over time as opposed to in large steps. Uniformitarianism, incrementalism, and reformism are similar concepts.
(...)
In politics, gradualism is the hypothesis that social change can be achieved in small, discrete increments rather than in abrupt strokes such as revolutions or uprisings. Gradualism is one of the defining features of political liberalism and reformism. Machiavellian politics pushes politicians to espouse gradualism.

@kxar Aren’t you bright!  This is how Authoritative regimes become Totalitarian regimes - it’s called gradualism, or incrementalism.

It’s called gradualism.  They take a small freedom. It doesn’t affect me. Ignore it. They keep repeating it. Soon your freedom is gone.

It’s called “gradualism” and it’s as old as government itself.

He’s likely referring to the level of fascism and temporary policy in which, as always, becomes permanent policy. Nazi Germany did not occur in a day, it’s called gradualism - our most severe vulnerability.
