According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, the definition of “extremism” is a “belief in and support for ideas that are very far from what most people consider correct or reasonable”. This definition confirms my understanding of extremism. I thought that it was doing an action, or many, based on a certain belief, taken to an extreme. Which is, in other words, the definition given by the Meriam-Webster definition. Most of the time, this word is related to extreme actions related to religious belief. However, this definition is not just about that.
