According to the Oxford Dictionary of Current English, extremism is “the holding of extreme political or religious views”. Although I did not have a lot of knowledge on this subject, I previously thought that extremism was a very broad word to define extreme ways of thinking related to any topic. In other words, I did not think that it had to be specifically about politics or religion. In my opinion, I believe that the given definition is too narrow and that it should include other topics that can be seen from an extreme perspective instead of focusing only on two.
