European "-ism"? For a lang that's not supposed to have any influence from
the SAE langs I'd find that an unlikely coincidence (of course, for a lang
that does have such influence, like Urianian, it's entirely to be expected).
I'd suggest using _-lios_ for faith and ideology and what have you and
different nominalisers for "polymorphism" and "obstructionism", and for that
matter things like "racism".
