Ok, so let me see.....it is violent extremism we are fighting, so, if the extremism is not violent, then it is not a problem. That works for me.
I tend to be an extremist. I do not own ONE of anything. I never have ONE cookie, ONE drink, or ONE hershey bar.
If I find a blouse or pair of shoes that works, I will get it in every color, especially if it is one sale. I buy underwear by the package, not one at a time. Same thing with socks.
By the same token, I do not do one sit up. Or go on one five mile walk. In fact, I think I am allergic to exertion altogether. I mean, if I exercise I have a bad reaction. I get sweaty, short of breath and flushed. That can't be good.
And further, I either do all the dirty dishes or none of them. I either vacuum the whole room or none of it. I either brush all my hair or none of it.
I think I am an definitely an extremist.
