UK think thank: ‘Ordinary people have a natural disposition towards extremist ideology and causes’
Which, by the normal definitions of “ordinary” and “natural,” means that those “ideologies and causes” cannot be… “extreme”:

However, on closer inspection it becomes clear that the generational difference flagged up by the Extremis Project is really about class.
