Britney Spears and the Monarch Project: UPDATED again
I wasn't planning on posting anything else about occult symbolism in the media, but my first post on the subject keeps getting a lot of hits so here is a quick link to Vigilant Citizen's latest article for now. There are others on his site that either come off as inaccurate or way too holier-than-though for my taste (haven't even started with the recent Lady Gaga one as I know it will make me roll my eyes), but VC's latest on Britney is, for the most part, a sane and responsible take on the Monarch Project, a subject that is often treated with unchecked speculation. I've always considered Britney to be an extreme example of unscrupulous media manipulation since even the tabloids admit she really isn't even allowed to make her own decisions, on account of her father's conservatorship which grants him decision-making ability over all of her legal affairs. There have been photos of her manager boyfriend beating her, she was barred from seeing her children until she took brain-damaging psych meds, and then of course, when Britney was 16 her manager dad arranged videos where she sang "Hit me baby one more time". Anyone with their head screwed on straight can see that something is not right here. And then if you throw in all the occult symbolism used in her public image, of which much has been written elsewhere, it all begins to add up to a very unsettling picture pointing to the involvement of organized Freemasonry or other well-connected occult groups.
Vigilant's latest is particularly disturbing because he has dug up evidence of both electroshock and amnesiac barriers, the memory loss of multiple personality disorder, in Britney's recent past. What he doesn't take on is the way that Britney's fundamentalist Christian handlers have, with the help of the court system, justified literally running her life by citing the head-shaving incident and all the different men she's dated. Fundamentalist values, in particular the enforcement of traditional gender presentation, along with notions about her "out of control" promiscuity, were the basis of the reasoning behind her complete loss of autonomy and basic human rights. It should come as no surprise that Vigilant Citizen is reluctant to mention these particular values because his fan base is primarily made up of evangelical Christians who see the Monarch Project as a method to usher in the Satanic New World Order. VC himself has also defended religious fundamentalists of both Christian and Muslim varieties, even going so far as to state that female genital mutilation is a valid cultural tradition, the criticism of which is a form of "hate speech". So, as always, keep a clear mind about what you read on the internet, because history has shown that so often those who claim to stand against tyranny merely reestablish a new form of tyranny all their own.
It is important to understand that one of the purposes of the Monarch Project was to standardize forcible and/or coercive psychiatric drugging as a method of social control, particularly within the prison industry, state-run rehab programs and the foster care system. Trauma-based mind control experiments perfected techniques designed to fracture the personality, and these techniques were then used to condition society as a whole. See The Shock Doctrine for a detailed analysis of how trauma-based mind control methods derived from the classified MK Ultra project have been used to establish right wing fiscal policies against the collective will of dissident populations. For some reason there really isn't too much of a focus on these issues coming from all the people researching the history of trauma-based mind control and its employment on celebrities. Hmm. I wonder why. At any rate, let's hope that some of this information will reach Britney so she can take step towards both recovery and the removal of her children from the destructive and dangerous environment they're in. Petitioning the court to get the conservatorship removed would be the logical first step.

When Britney's life went into a flat spin two years ago, the tabloid knives came out, not just for her, but also for 'stage mom' Lynne.
Anytime anything goes wrong with a child (even a grown-up child) bad mothering is an instant blame button and Britney's hard-drinking, head-shaving, fanny-flashing antics were taken as classic delayed teenage rebellion.
The tabloid press had a field day when Britney served her mother with a restraining order in 2007. Obviously it was Lynne's 'pushiness' that finally sent Britney to the brink. After Britney was twice-sectioned in early 2008, the courts made dad Jamie her conservator and Lynne, once a constant presence at Britney's side, pretty much vanished from the scene.
Jamie's absolute control over Britney's finances, property, business ventures and person (she reportedly isn't even allowed phone calls without his permission) has been widely lauded as a very good thing. "Too bad he didn't step in years ago when Lynne was in charge. Britney might not have been this much of a mess!" is a typical fan-site comment.
The minor matter of Britney's human rights, or rather her total lack thereof, is accepted on the basis that the conservatorship is 'working' and that she is 'stable'. The courts said as much when they made the situation permanent in late 2008, meaning unless Britney - who isn't allowed to hire her own lawyer - is able to challenge it, Jamie will be her legal guardian until he dies.
This ties up the loose ends in a neat, patriarchy-approved package. According to the script, Britney is a flighty, irresponsible female who cracked under the strain of overzealous mothering. Luckily dear old dad, a big, silent, crumple-faced man whose only previous public role was standing at the back of the occasional family photo-op looking awkward, has done what any good paterfamilias would and stepped in to set things straight.
This has a nice ring to it, and it saves fans and the media from having to engage with any of the uncomfortable truths underlying the myth of Britney's ascent from small-town talent show contestant to world's most powerful celebrity. Like fact that, until he sought rehab in 2004, he was severely alcoholic.
Not, according to Lynne's accounts, just a man who sometimes had a few too many on a Saturday night but a full-blown, not turning up at work, not paying the bills, disappearing for weekends, oh-my-god-what's-he-going-to-do-next alcoholic. His brother William has told the press: "Just about everyone in the Spears family is a drunk and Britney's dad Jamie was one of the worst. He would drink from daylight to night. Britney saw him drunk all the time....In Sean Smith's unauthorised biography, Britney's high school boyfriend recalls him pulling a gun on a relative during a drunken argument. A Daily Mail journalist tells how he refused to let her leave his house after an interview and kept stabbing the kitchen table with a carving knife."
Lynne, in her book, Through The Storm, writes that he was "reckless, sometimes mean, and absent from his family physically and emotionally... Looking back, I'm almost positive staying with Jamie was not the right thing to do for the kids. Our children saw far too many knock-down, drag-out fights between their mama and daddy."
...Jamie Spears and his co-conspirators – the courts and the media – have her locked up tight. Her press time is closely supervised (when Rolling Stone interviewed her recently the journalist had her questions strictly vetted and wasn't allowed to be alone with Britney) and of course she's not allowed her own lawyer. ..She has no choice to but to get up, go to work and keep her mouth shut. The one time Britney's had a chance to speak (in MTV documentary For The Record) she said: "I have really good days, and then I have bad days. Even when you go to jail you know there's the time when you're gonna get out. But in this situation, it's never ending." Hardly the sentiments of a girl delighted to be back under her father's watchful eye. But hey, who cares how Britney feels? She looks good, she's back onstage and everybody's getting paid. Better for a woman to be stripped of her rights than to have her running around stripped of her tights.
also: How Does Britney Spears Get Married Under a Conservatorship?
Is Jamie Spears ready to give his little girl away again? It's hard to say.
Because Britney Spears has been in a conservatorship since her almost career-ending meltdown in 2008, Jason Trawick is legally bound to ask her father—who holds the keys to the castle—for permission to marry Britney, family law expert Lisa Helfend Meyer tells E! News.
And what if Jamie says (or said) no? Does Trawick whisk Britney away on the back of his motorcycle, like in the "Criminal" video?
"If he doesn't consent, then her marriage would not be legal," Meyer said. "It's very restrictive. It's not like you are marrying an adult." Biologically, of course, Britney's a 30-year-old adult. But Jamie is the one who makes financial, medical and career decisions on her behalf. She has even been excused from giving depositions in various legal matters over the years because the judge overseeing her case has agreed with Britney's conservators (Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet) that she's not competent to testify. But so long as Britney's conservatorship remains, if there's a prenuptial agreement, Trawick will be entering into it with Jamie, Meyer says. And Britney could very well need her father's permission to rent a venue, purchase a wedding dress, pick out flowers, etc.—especially considering all of those things are likely to cost a pretty penny.
