George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and some others you may know of (you see where this is going). Some pretty "extreme" bunch
of fellas, and by todays standards "extreme Terrorists". The real question here is not what an extremist is, but whether or not some "extremism"
is a necessary mindset to further the cause of Liberty.
I mean how does one argue the good that was brought about by these "Gentlemens" extreme viewpoints and actions. The only problem I see is that flame
of "extremism" was extinguished and gave way to prolonged apathy which has time and time again given safe passage to tyranny.
When is it right to be a bit "extreme"?
Depending on your particular definition of "extremist" you may need not look any further than you next door neighbor or perhaps your own mirror.
