  • have you not seen some of those people swallowing their tounges? They have to be losing a lot of oxygen when they do that...which i would say can result in some mental delay.

  • Some do....or it can lead to poor mental health....I think that most extremism comes from a place of fear.....

  • I'm sure some do. But I don't think they all do. I think passion is a wonderful thing, and put to good use it's a blessing. It's when people have warped views of the world or their own power that passion becomes a weapon. When we see this same amount of passion put towards good actions we call these people heroes, it's only when they use their passion for the negative that they are labeled as "extremest" and are seen as bad...
