Home Office Definition of Extremism
“Vocal or active opposition to fundamental
British values, including democracy, the rule of
law, individual liberty and mutual respect and
tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. Also
calls for the death of members of our armed
forces whether in this country or overseas.”
Does extremism mean intolerance?
“What is objectionable, what is dangerous about
extremists, is not that they are extreme, but that they
are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their
cause, but what they say about their opponents.”
President Robert F. Kennedy
