The definition of "extremism" that I found was from a website called "Oxford Dictionaries". It asserts that extremism is "the holding of extreme political or religious views". Before reading this definition, I thought that extremism was more oriented towards radical acts of physical violence or threats rather than an act that can stem from a political or religious belief. Although I do think that many of us have a different outlook on this subject, I believe that it would be more just to clarify this term by simply defining it as an act of a radical view towards mankind.
