This list of "ism's" isn't as intimidating as it might seem at first...
...since the sentence tells us that the missing word means "existing outside of its own time."
We can feed the word "pragmatism" to the raptors, since it means the practice of approaching
things in a practical way.
"Monotheism" means the worship of one god, so it's raptor-meat, too.
"Imperialism" is when one nation dominates another economically, politically, or both.

a belligerent foreign policy.
Basically, it's when one country thinks it's all that and then some.
"Anachronism" describes something that exists outside of its own time...
...which is exactly what we're on the hunt for.
The root word chron means time, so there was an extra hint buried in there.
