According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, “extremism” is defined as “belief in and support for ideas that are very far from what most people consider correct or reasonable”.  This definition provides me with more clarity now.  I had a general understanding of what extremism is; however, this definition gives me a more concrete understanding of the fact that extremism can be applied to almost all ideas and beliefs that people may have, and not just those being of religious roots.
