Peace

By means of the ongoing expansion of non-violent, mutually consenting relationships among human beings, global peace becomes the norm in the next fifty years. Limited constitutional governments, founded on the rule of law and free and open democratic elections, combined with the free flow of goods, services, people, capital, and information across borders will be key to the permanent establishment of global peace. Entrepreneurial activity, including the creation of free trade zones and voluntaristic governments, may accelerate the rate at which we achieve global peace.

Prosperity

By means of an expansion of limited constitutional governments, founded on the rule of law and free and open democratic elections, more people in more nations will begin to benefit from the free flow of goods, services, people, capital, and information. Entrepreneurial activity will help billions of people rise out of poverty in the next fifty years. Poor people in the developed world will best be assisted by the elimination of professional licensure and other constraints on occupational freedom, the liberation of education, and the elimination of costly regulations and restrictions that increase their cost of living and reduce their choice of education, health care, housing, and community options.

Happiness

When people are engaged in productive, challenging, creative activity in the context of a meaningful, positive community, they are more likely to be happy. By means of the liberation of education and the workplace, FLOW entrepreneurs will increasingly create learning and work environments in which individual lives will be based on moment-to-moment flow optimal experience. By means of liberation of education, health care, housing, and community formation, FLOW entrepreneurs will increasingly create meaningful, positive communities. As people move up Maslow’s hierarchy, and as FLOW individuals develop their personal commitments to act out of love rather than fear, global happiness will spread throughout the world.

Sustainability

When the true environmental costs of our activities are included in the costs of those activities, we will have developed an economic system that ensures long-term environmental sustainability. In the case of pollutants such as sulfur dioxide (the cause of acid rain), this approach, in the form of a pollution trading rights system, has been extremely successful. In the case of many other pollutants, including carbon emissions, this approach presently involves severe challenges. FLOW will support and encourage coordinated entrepreneurial endeavors among scientists, engineers, lawyers, politicians, educators, and activists designed to resolve these serious issues. Insofar as individuals act, and expect others to act, out of good faith, and out of love rather than fear and hatred, progress should proceed more quickly in the future than has been the case in the past.

FLOW in ACTION

"Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference." ~ Joel Barker

FLOW programs bring ideas to life by engaging people with FLOW-related Ideas, Community and Action.
