Something that comes up a fair bit in the later, more established season of the Moscow Project. As it moves into its second generation, there's a doubling-down on the emphases of the first.

It manifests in numerous areas, but the one that comes to mind is this on liturgy:

I was talking [with our session of elders] about liturgy, high, low and middlin, and said that on a historic scale of one to ten, I thought our liturgical practices at Christ Church were about a 6. I then said that I wanted to get to 7. I hastened to add that I would rather be at 5 than at 8.

Sometimes, but not always, the slippery slope fallacy.

Not sure why I misspelled the post title.
