My name is Paul Gordon and I am the publisher and editor of iState.TV

Here is what iState.TV is all about:

iState is a podcast network, newsblog site, YouTube channel and (coming soon) radio network that produces content from the perspective of individualism, with an eye towards tilting the balance of power towards individuals and free associations.

We cover the sublime, the critical, the absurd and the fun. We do this through articles, reports, short videos, podcasts, and video shows.

iState advocates for the smallest state possible, the state of one. But we hope to walk with as many people as we possibly can toward a goal of, at the very least, diminishing the role of ‘the state’ (what we like to refer to as the coercive enterprise) in our lives.
Are you a potential iStater? Here is the simple question to ask yourself:

Do we prefer the state or do we think it’s a necessary evil? The key word here is NECESSARY. If you believe the STATE is NECESSARY, but you’d prefer it wasn’t, then you are an iStater.

You are willing to go down the path to discover if we as humans can govern ourselves, can magistrate ourselves, without the current model of human governance that we have, the state, or the coercive enterprise, in place.

In that spirit, iState will cover news and views from within that wide range of ‘governance’ perspectives (you might call it politics). But, at our core, we support reduction of dependence on coercive associations and greater dependence on non-coercive associations.

We wish to help facilitate conversations and actions that take us down a path of exploring the possibility of less and less coercive association in our lives. If you’re willing to travel down that path with us, even if you believe coercive enterprises are a NECESSARY evil, then you are an iStater. Welcome to the state of one.

The video above is a sample of the work that we do.

Goals
$5 of $2,000 per month

When I reach $2000 a month support, I will be able to work full-time on producing articles, videos and podcasts for iState.TV, as well as pay for promotions to grow the iState audience.
This is what iState is-
We produce two regular daily (Mon-Thurs) shows, iSDaily and Headlines You May Have Missed.
These shows focus on stories that highlight awareness (this is the reality of the coercive governance model), hope (this is how the coercive governance model is being undermined), and action (this is what you can do to disentangle yourself and others from the coercive enterprise web).
The opening of our iSDaily show begins with a quote from the book, "Dune," which is "Fear is the mind killer." This underscores everything we do. Fear is useful when it makes us aware of real threats. But beyond that, fear is a paralyzer that prevents us from going forward with the action needed to tilt the balance of power towards individuals and free associations
We produce fully original articles, essays, editorials that, again focus on the same theme, awareness, hope, and action
And finally, we are a news aggregator focused on news not regularly carried by either the MS or even alternative media. Our stories focus on awareness, hope, and action. There's plenty of good news and opportunities for those who wish to see free association governance make coercive governance obsolete.
.

iState follows the VisPrivus path. I call myself a VisPrivusion (I coined the word). It comes from the Latin Vis- Power, and Privus- Individual.
For me, it means anyone who advocates for tipping the balance of power always towards individuals and free associations over coercive enterprises (the state) starting first and foremost with yourself.A Visprivusian is not necessarily an Anarchist, but is happy to continue, as far as human reality allows, down the path towards the strengthening of individual and free association power and the ever-diminishing power of the coercive enterprise.
