May be because as I say from time to time, we can not live without dogmas
or else there would be no human collaboration, so no human society could
exist whatsoever. The mind was made for that purpose,. Then innately, its
notion of truth is not neutral, it is linked to values. We can not avoid
that. That´s why assumptions or premises, slowly become dogmas.
There are funny examples. Democracy for example, can not be just a
convenient (or the most convenient) way of organizing a society. Once
formulated, and specially among the people that do not accept other dogmas,
Inmediately the democatic principle becomes a dogma an a source of wishdom.
so the democratic decissions can not go wrong. Many people says: The people
can not go wrong!!
