* The anti-PC culture sometimes does this. Apparently having a minority MainCharacter replace (or even appear in a work with) a white/male/straight character leads to the work turning everyone into abortion-loving transgender liberals to please the SJW crowds. ''Series/TheLateShowWithStephenColbert'' made a fake trailer for an all female ''Franchise/StarWars'' film as a TakeThat to the "fans' who bullied Kelly Marie Tran for being an active woman in ''Film/TheLastJedi''.

** This may however be a very slippery slope indeed, as historical accounts of hyperinflation can tell. Raising the minimum wage leads to higher prices for products and services, which soon demands another minimum wage increase. The problem is aggravated by governments trying to keep up with their increased spending by printing more money, thus devaluing the currency even further, and soon you'll be holding a million dollar bill in your hands for a day's work, that will be worth only a tenth of its current value after another day has passed.

* Frequently used in discussions regarding whether or not same-sex marriage should be legalized. Those opposed argue that allowing same-sex couples to marry will lead to similar laws allowing people to marry animals or underaged children.

* Often used to argue against laws banning hate speech. Free speech absolutists argue that if you deny free speech rights to neo-Nazis, you have to deny them to everyone.

* ''Film/AnimalHouse'' rather awesomely uses this argument in the scene where Otter convinces Dean Wormer that it is unethical to target the entire fraternity for the action of "a few sick and twisted individuals". He then claims that if they are going to blame his fraternity, then they should blame the entire fraternity system, and if they are going to blame the entire fraternity system, they should blame the entire American society in general. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome They then leave the room humming the national anthem.]]

* Dropping the atomic bombs on Japan. Many of the scientists were certain that using it would lead to an arms race and total destruction of civilization. We've done a pretty good job avoiding the second bit (albeit with a few close calls, some of which were '''far''' closer than people knew at the time), but they got the arms race bit right.
