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.

    Professor of Politics and The Richard L. Bready Chair for Ethics, Economics, and the Common Good at Saint Anselm College, Manchester, NH.

    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.

Up In the Air

Posted by Dale Kuehne on April 15, 2010

Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) seeks to explain relationships in the iWorld in the movie Up in the Air

    Ok, he says, “well, I don’t.”
    I would expect that most Christians who believe in commitment before marriage before sex, in that order, would still put love alongside commitment. Not only that, would count the absence of “that special moment when you look into another person’s eyes and time stands still” as being the sine qua non of even considering marriage et al.

    We have the Ryan Bingham character who says he doesn’t feel it. The consensus of believing people, in my guess-timation, is that Ryan either not get married at all, not have a sorta-relationship, or maybe have a relationship with the girl as much as she wants to, and if she doesn’t want any, fine, call it quits.

    I’m unclear what you, Dale, are trying to assert by this video clip.

  2. lol, Clooney is so funny! I love him.

    In this blog, everything I post is something I believe speaks to either the iWorld, the rWorld or both. I believe the Signposts speak for themselves and am glad to see to what degree others disagree or agree.
