Your developed emotional intelligence allows you to think clearly. It is thought that creates belief systems. Many leaders in the spheres of politics, religion and economics know this. If their dogma can be ruthlessly be broadcast in the disguise of ‘thought leadership’ and it is repeated continually, it will become a belief system amongst the humans. They also realize, that if their dogma can just cement itself in the human mind and remove the independent thought patterns, then they have power over the humans like sheep. Sheep follow a herder. The herder effect is vital because if you want ‘market share’ then you need ‘mindshare’. These leaders are ruthless conformists and they want ruthless conformity. No resistance, no problem.
Dogma is, in fact, the enemy of human freedom. No one has exclusive possession of the truth. Dogma must be watched for and detained in every day of human life.
Build a filter in your mind, test everything, think independently and be free.
