Dogma: beliefs that are proclaimed as true without proof Dogma can be beliefs that are political, economic, religious, social, scientific, etc. Anytime anyone argues that some doctrine is the one correct way or true path, while only providing the doctrine itself and their personal faith as the authority to argue that claim, they are using dogma. For centuries upon centuries, people in power have used dogma to pit different races, nations, creeds, etc. against each other. Dogma is easily recognizable because it can only be effectively pushed via propaganda. Selective use of facts, and reinterpretations that distort truth, are the basis by which dogma is born and spread. What do you feel is the best way to fight dogma? Do you feel some dogma is good, or will dogma always inevitably lead to groups clashing because of their competing certainties? Is there a way to separate personal faith from dogma? Are you aware of what dogma's you embrace and which ones in the world conflict with yours?
