I'm reacting a bit to the use of the term "fundamentalism" as potentially a bad thing. The original use is a desire to get to the foundation of what you are building. If we don't operate upon a foundation, we desire a crooked building.
I think it has become skewed as part of the inaccurate assignment to Islamists who interpret the Koran in a certain way to promote aggression against other infidels. I would suggest they should be called Aggressive Islamists.
Keep the term fundamental and its "ism" for where it is truly needed - youth basketball and soccer coaches who desire that their new players stay in bounds, dribble effectively and and don't pick up the ball and run. That's a good thing!
