Fundamentalism was a very big problem in the early 2000’s across all branches of religion. When the great awakening occurred, there was an immediate shift to a more reformed belief. However, the Brutish are a throwback to ages past who use pain to punish and no mercy for the weak. They are anti-establishment and would like to see the downfall of capitalism. They are only respected by a select few other religions, otherwise most would like to see them vanish forever.
