Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

Maybe Jesus was onto something when he taught his disciples how to pray.

One Response to “Forgive Us Our Debt”

  1. Bruce Meyer said

    The zfacts headlining article on saving and spending seemed really strange, where the writer said that if everyone spent 90% and saved 10% that the economy would die. In the idealized world he writes of, that accumulated 10% would be loaned to businesses who borrow to capitalize profit-making business, yielding further growth. Assuming a spherical cow, so to speak.

    When loans are made against cash on hand, and turned around for a profit, it’s win-win. When loans are made against fiat money, it can only work with near zero risk. When bad loans (say, on houses for borrowers with bad credit) are made on fiat money, the system itself has to crash.

    Owe no one anything except the continuing debt to love one another, eh?
