Anti-discrimination policies

People ask what are some of the differences between Living at FLOW and how people currently live/view their world.  From time to time we will give some examples of those differences.  Below is one such example.

A city council updated their anti-discrimination policies by adding the following:

“No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age, or disability,”.

A politician who helped pass the ordinance stated “It’s a common-sense ordinance that’s going to treat everyone equally… Nobody will be a second-class citizen, there will be basic fairness and common decency for everybody.”

Someone opposed to the ordinance stated: “The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias — without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised — that you cannot get a city contract… Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”

What this law did was not provide “fairness” for everybody… it ensured that certain people will be made into a lower class of citizen.

This is what Living at FLOW is working to do – help people realize that we can not categorize everyone into the same box that only 1-5% of the people will fit into.  One way to ensure this is by being aware of the words we use.  In the above example the word “bias” can be used differently by different people depending on what they want the outcome to be, which was pointed out by the person opposed to the ordinance.

Another “trick phrase” is “treat everyone equally” which sounds great yet does not work @F-L-O-W.  Treating everyone equally can mean different things to different people and who is defining what “equal” is plus we are not all equal.  @F-L-O-W we are all different and perfect.
