But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance. Mark 13:23
Utopian dreams burst onto the American mainstream consciousness in 1967 with the iconic “The Age of Aquarius/ Let the Sunshine In” medley originally part of the Broadway production of Hair, later recorded by the R&B group The 5th Dimension in 1969. According to the lyrics, the remedy for mankind’s needs is found in the planets and star constellations of our galaxy. To gain insight into our shared path forward in peace and love, mankind must “look to the stars.” The lyrics state this plainly:
When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation
The 5th Dimension enjoyed a six week ride at number one on the Billboard charts with this breakthrough song. Clearly, Americans were ready for more peace and love sentimentality. The radio jingle “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing,” adapted for a Coca-Cola commercial in 1971 provided another push toward the globalist dream of peace, safety, and unity. In this song we were entertained by a very early effort to condition us to multiculturalism. People of all walks of life, nationalities, and ethnicities, all gathered on a hilltop to sing kumbaya. Actually, the lyrics were much more in line with the re-emerging idea of the earth as a living organism.
