We are witnessing a disinformation storm on Georgian society, where they are still trying to suppress common sense with slogans and dogmas – Papuashvili

We are witnessing a disinformation storm on the Georgian society, where they are still trying to suppress common sense with slogans and dogmas. Such a statement made today the Speaker of the Parliament, while talking about the draft law “On Transparency of Foreign Influence”.

“I think the public became convinced yesterday that there is an attempt to cover the discussion with shouting. We are now, in fact, witnesses of a disinformation storm on the Georgian society, where they are still trying to suppress common sense with slogans and dogmas.

This process has its own description, it is called dogmatism, where instead of presenting arguments, an opinion is sold to the public as an argument. All this is reasoning with dogma and they no longer enter into the argument. Mamuka Mdinaradze has been asking the main question for 9 hours yesterday. There is one simple way to identify dogmatic arguments and dogmatism, this is one simple question - why?

When there is no reasoned answer to this, we are dealing with a dogma, a belief that they want to present as an argument. Yesterday they could not give an answer to the question. The only thing that confirms that we are dealing with dogma was an answer that someone abroad does not like it. Was this the only answer? Does not Brussels tell you no? Does not Washington say no? The country has gone through different stages in its life and so have these people. We have known one thing for the last 30 years: the main thing is what the Georgian people say”, - said Shalva Papuashvili.
