Dominionism is the view that the goal of Christian ultra-fundamentalism should be world dominion, that is, "to bring all societies, around the world, under the rule of the word of [Abraham's god]."
Its most common form, Dominionism, represents one of the most extreme forms of Fundamentalist Christianity thought. Its followers, called Dominionists, are attempting to peacefully convert the laws of United States so that they match those of the Hebrew Scriptures. They intend to achieve this by using the freedom of religion in the US to train a generation of children in private Christian religious schools. Later, their graduates will be charged with the responsibility of creating a new Bible-based political, religious and social order. One of the first tasks of this order will be to eliminate religious choice and freedom. Their eventual goal is to achieve the "kingdom of [Abraham's god]" in which much of the world is converted to Christianity. They feel that the power of God's word will bring about this conversion. No armed force or insurrection will be needed; in fact, they believe that there will be little opposition to their plan. People will willingly accept it. All that needs to be done is to properly explain it to them. (ReligiousTolerance.org)
One can admire their optimism, if nothing else.

Christian Reconstructionism "Reconstructionists advocate theocracy and the restoration of Mosaic law." Reconstructionists are to the Christian Right what the Islamic State and Islamic Law are to Islam, though Reconstructionists advocate achieving their goal peacefully.
