Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake”: A Video About Monarch Mind Control

samborowski (CC)

Here at disinformation we always enjoy a wacky critique of popular music videos and the motivation of the artists who made them, such as the Illuminati conspiracy featuring Eminem, Lady Gaga and Jay-Z. Now Vigilant Citizen “explains” (we’re not sure if they’re serious…) how Katy Perry joins the cabal of overachieving recording artists with a video about Project Monarch mind control (a supposed offshoot of the CIA’s MKULTRA program):

Many articles on this site described how many items of popular culture conceal within their symbolism references to an unknown, horrendous practice: Monarch programming. This technique of mind control seeks to create fully “programmable” individuals and is used by the shadowy elite in fields such as the military, politics and the murky underworld (for detailed information on Monarch programming, read the article Origins and Techniques of Monarch Mind Control). Another area in which mind control (especially Monarch programming) is used is the entertainment business – not only because some celebrities are actual victims of mind control, but because entertainment is used to subtly normalize and glamorize this awful practice through symbolism.

Katy Perry’s video Wide Awake is yet another music video that alludes to the concept of Monarch programming through its storyline and its imagery. While this might not be obvious to most people, those who have some knowledge of the subject of mind control find it extremely blatant.

In many ways, the video resembles works that have been previously analyzed on this site, such as the movies Labyrinth and Sucker Punch and music videos like Paramore’s Brick by Boring Brick. All of these productions visually represent the inner-world of Monarch slaves through a specific set of symbols: mirrors, butterflies (especially Monarch butterflies), mazes and so forth. Not only do these objects aptly portray psychological concepts, they are actual “trigger images” used in mind control on Monarch slaves. Wide Awake fully utilizes this set of symbols, which gives the storyline a deeper, and more disturbing, meaning…

  1. Russell Brand got out just in time. Or did he?

    • give the kindling some time, Russel Brand will probably start a media fire of bad publicity and do for weed and entheogens what Charlie Sheen did for coke and prostitutes.

    I find that site both interesting and entertaining but there are as many presumptions and mistakes as there are conclusions. There is also a worrying evangelical zeal about some of the people who post comments.
    I would also like some explanation as to why the illuminati/’occult forces/bad guys continually flood the market with videos supposedly exposing their evil ways.

    Or could it be that the crass and hackneyed imagery has been used so often it is an easy fall back for some stoner sat at a storyboard?

    • The theory is known among some of the more “imaginative” conspiracy theorists as “predictive programming”. By repeatedly exposing their evil ways to children when their minds are more impressionable (conditioning), the concepts of Illuminati practices are familiarized and will seem like “natural progressions”, thus (if not morally, then at least) emotionally and psychologically acceptable among the population at large. The goal is too lessen public resistance and commotion.

         And of course, the fact that these fictional scenarios are *always* portrayed as negative and something that the heroes of the story fight and overcome is always ignored by these conspiracy theorists…

        • MoralDrift | Jun 26, 2012 at 8:21 am |

          The hero is always a lone man, and upon reaching a certain age one realizes that the lone man can do nothing. So powerless and hopelessness ensues followed by acceptance on drone-dom and henchman-ism. That is of course if the subject ever adopted the righteous hero archetype to begin with…but the programming assures many will

          • BrianApocalypse | Jun 27, 2012 at 12:41 pm |

             Well, mythology is full of “lone saviors” and I don’t think co-intelpro was in operation thousands of years ago. The lone hero archetype just happens to fit extremely well into the conventions of storytelling. Stories require some kind of character progression to be compelling, and that progression is most easily and effectively expressed by focusing on a main character or small group of characters.

            There are actually many movies in which a group of heroes band together to fight the Evil Empire, not all of them focus on just one single hero.

          • MoralDrift | Jun 27, 2012 at 12:59 pm |

            true and I was being a bit over the top but I think that it isnt a stretch for propaganda artists to tap into cultural archetypes

      • Bksimmons | Jun 26, 2012 at 1:46 am |

         I believe it is called brainwashing

       In order to understand why you have to undestand the nature of occult and the power behind symbols. If you understand that, you understand whey do it..

      but i agree..VC has some great stuff, and some really paranoid stuff, and the commenters are just out of their minds

      • Anybody with any real understanding of the occult would know that the version of occultism that the VC and his elk perpetuate is paranoid fairytale which panders to the fears of right wing Christian goons, who regard all alternative, direct, non-hierarchical spiritual practices as demonic and evil in nature.  This is nothing more than a modern version of the satanic messages on heavy metal records hysterical panic of the 80s – the fact that the VC’s followers are predominantly fundamentalist cretins is no accident.

        And anybody who talks about the Illuminati as though they were anything other than a short-lived group of Enlightenment free-thinkers who sought to abolish Churches and Monarchies, and weren’t particularly successful at it, is a crank.

        • BrianApocalypse | Jun 25, 2012 at 6:36 pm |

           Yeah this is something that more people really need to understand. So much conspiracy theory has its roots in fundamentalist Christian paranoia. A lot of ‘free thinking’ people have been drawn into the conspiricist worldview without realizing this.

          • Calypso_1 | Jun 25, 2012 at 7:07 pm |

            Very good, this is a great topic – the bizarre apocalyptic, Chick Tract/ John Birch Society fueled, Satanic baby-eating cult fearing, anti-NWOites are indeed the origin of much of this world view.  And they’ve been guided all along the way by parties highly accomplished in engineering human dread as a political force.

          • BrianApocalypse | Jun 26, 2012 at 8:26 am |

             It’s no coincidence that some of this stuff occasionally finds its way to Fox News!

          • Calypso_1 | Jun 26, 2012 at 10:55 am |

            Look back further than Fox to mainstream news with the Satanic cult/baby sacrifice scares of the 70’s & 80’s.  You will find the genesis of these absurdities in sunday night pray meetings with traveling ‘experts’ showing ‘proof’ of these atrocities….then a few weeks later you’ve got another speaker coming through handing out pictures of aborted babies…telling a select few bug eyed zealots its OK to kill doctors – invitations to special ‘prayer retreats’. The Moral Majority was such an insidious little game.  Still is.

           An “elk” is a large species of deer. 🙂

  3. Really? This is absolute nonsense. I feel sorry for those that have fallen down the rabbit hole of over analyzing music videos that most of us will never watch. And as far as Russell getting out in time….he cheated on her if i’m not mistaken. If any of that  matters. So I’d say she’s just another woman that “got away” from a womanizing narcissist. She doesnt produce these videos btw. The real brainwash is the one the over analyzers are suffering from. People that pick apart all entertainment as illuminati messages and symbolism on their lame websites and radio shows are in it for the money, it’s trendy in christian circles right now. PSSSST…you’re being exploited by complete nut cases. I find it interesting that an add at the end of Vigilante nut job’s page is for something I was searching for on “StartPage” You know the page…the search engine that isnt supposed to invade your privacy. Wake up people, this shit is a distraction created by the very powers that you all fear so deeply. You’ve all been SUCKER PUNCHED!

    • Signal Reference | Jun 25, 2012 at 4:22 pm |

       I feel sorry for those who dont understand occultism but yet try to explain this stuff away. The artists most of the time have no idea what they are doing, its why THEY HAVE NO CONTROL or very little control over their art..

      Again im not defending VC, but you people need to educate yourself before you open your mouth

  4. Vigilant Citizen is obsessed with Project Monarch, yet its existence is pretty shaky as evidence for it rests on the witness account of one single person: Cathy O’ Brien.

    Still… V.C.’s analysis is a lot more entertaining than the bland pop videos themselves.

  5. Whatever, she’s hot. 

    • Indeed she is, in a certain sort of way. Try and check out the “How I met your Mother” episode with Katy in it.

      There’s something doubly appealing about former Fundie chicks who have just thrown off the yoke of the religious morality of their childhood.

      The reality is that they generally have not, but that doesn’t keep them from having something to prove.

      Trust me, you want to be the guy they’re trying to prove it with. 😉

      • As a man who has been with a former fundie chick who wanted to prove something, yes.

  7. An ‘Ezekiel 25:17-a-thon’ is needed throughout this so-called society.
    (but the many lost sheep who continue to be in denial/talk-shit when proof/truth surrounds them need to be ‘put down’).

    • So much for “Infinite and Eternal Blessings to ALL. Forgiveness is needed. Healing is needed. Love is needed. Complete change is needed. Love. Light. Peace.” eh?

  8. It’s a shame she makes such shitty music because she is beautiful.

  9. This article seems legit, everytime I see Katy Perry in a video I have an overwhelming rush, almost an altered state of mind, and thoughts and ideas that consist of ravaging the woman and doing things to her that would make Casanova blush.

    • Take if from me, you’re generally ok til you want to do things that will make Caligula blush.

      • Caligula is a personal hero of mine. I’m often inspired by the way he treated people. Not a fan of his early stuff, but his later actions were amazing.

    the image behind the microphone reminds so much of a young linda ronstadt.

    Seems the formula is working whatever its intentions.  I mean the revolving door of publicity created and sustained around the occult imagery and the purveyors trope’ing (verbisize it!)  it out given them the sinister sheen (read chic/cool) which translates into dollar signs and attention capital.

    VC is a fundie gossip rag and ironically enough cover some interesting topics and symbolism but of course it is pictured through the same judeo-christian glasses without fail.

    I remember being hauled off to a Billy Graham stadium revival as a young lad and hearing the first conceptualization of “altars” and “mind control.”  I don’t discount they are real, they were just perceived through the same judeo-christian literalist glasses that VC is now donning and I opted to walk out and play video games rather than sit in that mental swirl.

    Anyone intersted in MK Ultra will find there is a serious basis for all of the symbolism been repeatedly injected via HD 24/7 WiFi broadcasts into young minds and the cumulative effect may be a hypnotic consumer trigger or worse for all we know.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nucsSUTpnY

    Don’t believe this?  Study the concept of predictive programming and think about films like “True Lies” paving the way for our resident alien American power whore AAAhhNuld ScharzaRapist to focus “Goldstein” hate towards Islam and Middle Easterners everywhere.  Or say “The Lone Gunmen” episode of Xfiles which was broad-cast about 3 months previous to 9/11/01 if I am not mistaken.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9nrWREkrIM

    Attuning people to accept ideas not in their best interest is the hallmark of Propagandist and the PR industry period.  Of course they would seek to apply this neuromarketing early and often to acclimate unwitting victims to go along with the herd.

    James Corbett gets into an much more thorough and eloquent analysis of the current and emerging neuromarketing onslaught brought to you by the sweet Eugenicists at the Bill and Melinda Gates’ foundation and being employed by devlish dataminers everywhere in the following podcasts.


    Oh one more thing.


    Kidding of course.

    What are  these people on? This doesn’t look like a mind control video. Really, it looks more like the great video that Kate Bush/Bjork would have done with Guillermo Del Toro. Now if you threw in references to The Prisoner, The Matrix and Dark City you may have a case. Nice try.
