Announcing: Classes in Communications Privacy and Data Security


Classes in Data Security & Communications Privacy

One of the key elements of your individual sovereignty is your ability to have private information and either keep it private or communicate it privately to other people. In order to have effective data security and communications privacy, you need to understand a significant array of technologies. Fortunately, we have teachers well versed in these matters who are available to help. In addition, we are helping to organise a series of seminars throughout the year 2016 at different locations around the world so that our people can help you make the most of these techniques.

Our comprehensive course is regularly $500 but for a limited time (through 31 May 2016) readers of Digital Gold Magazine(external link) can purchase the course for $399.

"All things must be examined, debated, investigated without exception and without regard for anyone's feelings." ― Denis Diderot, explaining the goal of the Encyclopedia


"This institution of my native state, the hobby of my old age, will be based on the illimitable freedom of the human mind, to explore and to expose every subject susceptible of it's contemplation." - Thomas Jefferson to Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy, 26 December 1820


Individual Sovereign University Association

The Individual Sovereign University was founded in June 2009. Over the next year and a half, the group grew considerably. In March 2011, freedom activists came together for a founding conference. Subsequently, a number of classes were offered by different people, both online and in person. A related organisation received a gift of a building at the end of 2011. Efforts to raise money to repair its roof did not come together, and the related organisation sold the building in 2013.

The effort to develop a tradition of stateless education is not over. It is, however, not as easy to accomplish that goal as we had first hoped. Although the violence, brutality, and surplus order of the state is a major issue in education at all levels, today, it is not the only impediment to creating an effective alternative.
