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.
