This chapter analyzes the arguments the champions of global fundamentalism advance and looks at how critics of global fundamentalism respond to those arguments. Defenses of global fundamentalism often acknowledge that the arguments of skeptics contain more than a few grains of truth. Champions of global fundamentalism say that skeptics are right to warn that when used sloppily, the concept can produce inadequate analyses of the people to whom it is applied. People who champion global fundamentalism readily admit that the vast majority of the people they call fundamentalists do not apply that label to themselves. But they see no reason to let how fundamentalists see themselves determine which categories can and cannot be used to analyze them.
