Definition of Extremism
by RemiLeroux on March 16, 2016 - 2:03pm
The Merrian-Webster online dictionary defines "extremism" as the "belief in and the support for ideas that are very far from what most people consider correct or reasonable". Before being aware of this definition, I believed that extremism was only associated with extreme religious beliefs. Now that I know this definition, I know that extremism is associated with any extreme idea, whether its nature is religious or not.
