    The term "Dogma" typically refers to a set of beliefs or principles that are considered to be unquestionably true. In a pejorative sense, dogma can be seen as rigid and authoritarian. Enforced decisions align with this negative connotation as they imply a top-down approach where decisions are imposed on others without room for discussion or dissent. This suggests a lack of flexibility or openness to alternative perspectives, reinforcing the negative perception of dogma.
