Temper dogma with common sense

I checked the meaning of dogma. It is a set of principles laid out by authority and treated as absolutely true.

Some people are dogmatic about political systems. The hold strong beliefs about capitalism, free market, communism or socialism.

Some people are dogmatic about their religion.

Dogmatic people tend to have a close mind. They hold certain strong beliefs and disregard what they actually happens in everyday lives.

I prefer to follow principles and values but temper them with actual observations and common sense.

I believe that the principles should be interpreted with flexibility and common sense

I hope that people have an open mind when they apply dogmatic principles.

  • Two Lampars on Your Shoulders:

    Tan Kin Lian,

    Don’t tell me you don’t have a dogma here?
    You never answer critics and your silence also meant you’re always right?

    Read your own thoughts below:

    ‘principles should be interpreted with flexibility and common sense’
    Based on your flexibility/common sense? or others? Isn’t that also dogma? Your own flexibility is common sense. Others are dogmas?
    Don’t be an idiot.

  • Went to Japan:

    You love CCP so much till you cant see the problems they are creating regionally… bullying and intimidating citizens and countries Just because they are now rich and doing well?

    I reckon a lot of things you make sense but when it comes to politics and also looking at the greater good of things, you are same as PAPPY. If PAPPY did not stop your extension as NTUC Income CEO, you would still be singing their tune la. Your opinions I saw are quite similar to PAP model except you dislike them.

    You dont do what you preach. People list you examples of what you dont wish to hear or cannot defend, you block them.

  • Tremorslizbag:

    you can discount religion because it is another political system but spineless and vision unrealistic and impractical in the real world(misled and fake).

    Put it plainly, their idea of a “kingdom” is centered on a deity,which is not workable(idolatry), so said their chief priest or clergy(blind leading the blind)

    What remains is the genuine article which truth is imperil to your unbelief.

    Just watch your political economy destructive progression or advancement.

    The fire rages.

  • xoxo:

    If PAPple are more dogmatic than dicttorial,wouldnt it be better?
    Take simple examples here.

    * NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW*.
    EXCEPT THE dictator$ themselves.
    A dogmatic administration would really take pain to ensure that even the PAPple are not above the LAW?

    *CANNOT RAID RESERVES…*
    BUT some PAPple can???
    And, NO NEED TO ACCOUNT IN DETAILS?

    * NO FAVORITISM* N MUST HAVE INTEGRITY.
    BUT THE *CEO* OF A GLC HO-ding$ need not disclose her salary package as it is *State scret* when even ELECTED PREZ DISCLOSES her salary?

    DOGMATIC MEANS STICK TO PRINCIPLES AS LAID DOWN AND NO *CLOWNING* AROUND???

  • Me & Facts vs Values:

    Mindless action without a real understanding of the ramifications is only likely to result in serious miscalculations or a colossal waste of time. Avoid both by using your judgment, filtered through both knowledge and experience. Use common sense and logic as a counterbalance to emotion. By the way, what are your values?
