Robert Mannis, one of our presenters, responds:
The importance of the new millennium, can’t be underestimated. It is unfortunate that this momentous occasion is sullied by a song popular 50 years ago. I completely agree that the hippie identity with Aquarius was immature, certainly. But at the same time it was infused with far more than debauched self-indulgence. It also held an incipient consciousness affirming the process of individuation, as well as our mutual responsibilities to each other collectively, and especially the value of creativity. In the limited vernacular of the day it was clumsily expressed as, “do your own thing, man”.
