The Misnomer Of Extremist Politics - Part One

Run for it Marjory!!! The Extremists are Coming!

We often hear about 'extremism' in society. The word usually stems from the mouths of mainstream political parties and the mainstream media when they discuss anything which is not suitable to themselves and their own 'middle ground' positions.

Thanks to the proliferation of its use in modern British discourse, I am sure the general public will have a clear vision in their minds as to what such extremism might entail.

That vision is most likely going to include 'English Defence Leagues', Islamic 'Hate' Groups, and of course British National Party members, leaders and supporters.

With this in mind, I thought we could take a quick look at what may be deemed as being 'extremist' politics, ask whether it is a justified label for 'nationalists' and pose the question of whether extremist regimes are actually already carrying out their extreme ideas right under our noses.
