    the current connotation of "fundamental-ist" an imperfect derivative of its own root word:

    fun·da·men·tal   [fuhn-duh-men-tl]–adjective

    1. serving as, or being an essential part of, a foundation or basis; basic; underlying: fundamental principles; the fundamental structure.
    1. of, pertaining to, or affecting the foundation or basis: a fundamental revision.
    1. being an original or primary source: a fundamental idea.

    In the broader and, imho, more accurate context the term "fundamentalist" is appropriately applied by teacherken in this diary.
