LoveGov is a project by the Independent Institute. The short videos show the pitfalls of Alexis, an unrealistic college student, as she deals with her tyrannical oppressive boyfriend Scott “Gov” Govinsky.

This is well done, and funny. The guy playing Gov does a great job. But as you think about the problems Gov’s interventions cause Alexis, you begin to see your one-sided relationship with Big Government, and it is sobering to say the least.


More people have to understand that Government decision-making can’t possibly produce as good an outcome as the outcome created when individuals are allowed to make their own decisions. The quote by F. A. Hayek at the top of this blog says it all:

“The coordination of mens activities through central planning or through voluntary cooperation are roads going in very different directions, the first to serfdom and poverty the second to freedom and plenty.”
