Love Gov is a project of the Independent Institute in association with Emergent Order.
In Love Gov Season 1, the federal government is portrayed as an overbearing boyfriend—Scott “Gov” Govinsky—who foists his “good intentions” on hapless, idealistic college student, Alexis. Each episode follows Alexis's relationship with Gov as his intrusions wreak (comic) havoc on her life, professionally, financially, and socially. Alexis's loyal friend Libby tries to help her see Gov for what he really is—a menace. But will Alexis come to her senses in time?
In Love Gov Season 2, shunned by a failed relationship of his own doing, Gov embarks on a new, more ambitious mission to “help” a group of early careerists seeking to establish themselves. This time, Gov works hilariously to create and manipulate a crisis to entrap and control his houseguests and ensure their dependency. Will Gov’s intrusive scheming last and doom them to uncertain and desperate lives? Can an entire community see through Gov’s folly and set a new course for success?
Jack Saba leads the panel about today's and future use of blockchain.
