"What constitutes extremism is usually contentious and often a matter of cultural or political perspective. Some groups actually admit and embrace their extremism as justifiable toward accomplishment of their agenda or goals. Others work hard to present themselves as more mainstream or activist groups.Although many extremist attitudes and acts are seemingly unarguable to a large segment of society, it is also fair to note that the charge of extremism is an often-used label applied by opponents in order to marginalize or dismiss an organization's philosophical goals."
