Extremists

Extremist is such a loaded word. It is more of a social position than an ideological one, as we are not sure of absolute truth yet. An extremist may just as well have divine revelation as a centrist.

Generally, those who start with a basic set of assumptions and work their way to 'logical' conclusions tend to be extremists. The centrists are composed of those with no underlying assumptions, who merely listen to the extremists and then take the 'logical' conclusions and their own personal feelings into consideration.

The key to successful extremism is to move toward the center and then pull toward your extreme. Over time, illogic and societal momentum may lead the vast herds of humanity to your position, although they will not necessarily comprehend it.
