As Sir Dayvd has given me the correct information on the Australian band, Mental as Anything. This is the cover of one of their CD's titled "Fundamental". Truer words have never been uttered together; "fundamental is mental as anything."
I have been contemplating the many variations of fundamental, which in itself, is a huge oxymoron because fundamentally, fundamentals are narrow in vision.
The Oxford American Dictionary describes fundamental as: "forming a necessary base or core; of central importance • so basic as to be hard to alter, resolve, or overcome"
Just as the moderates across the globe have lost their voice and have become the silent majority, so too we have allowed the very word "fundamental" to be hijacked from our language to describe those who are righteous and right. Just ask them! Do they know what the word really means? Do we?
It seems to me that we should all take the Oxford American Dictionary description literally, to use a favored word of fundamentals. We are challenged today as a species to form a necessary base of central importance...for all! We are challenged today as a species to make the rights and freedom of all such a core message that those freedoms will never be altered or overcome in the future. Can we do it? "Yes we can!", to coin the battle cry of Barrack Husein Obama.
As an American the word fundamental has truly become more like "Fund A Mental". Yes Monty Python, "we have gone completely mental!" It is time to "Fund A Middle", to give voice to the silent majority, to change the course of this nation, this world, this species.
Besides, there is always so much more variety and spice to life when you embrace the way of a "Funinthemiddle"!
