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.

Why Professional Athletes Should Avoid Marriage and Embrace Promiscuity

Posted by Dale Kuehne on September 14, 2010

Maturity in the 21st Century … or not.

“Agents need to grow up too. Instead of encouraging their clients to get married to their first girlfriend at the age of 25 or earlier, why don’t they manage their life a little more intelligently? At least, if the players stay single longer, then they can act more irresponsibility and associate with as many escorts or strippers as they like without being judged by society.”

When I’m ridin’ round the world
and I’m doin’ this and I’m signing that
and I’m tryin’ to make some girl
who tells me a baby better come back a maybe next week
’cause you see I’m on losing streak.
I can’t get no, oh no no no.
a Hey hey hey, that’s what I say.

I can’t get no, I can’t get no,
I can’t get no satisfaction,
no satisfaction, no satisfaction, no satisfaction.

Satisfaction by Mick Jagger and Keith Richard from Out of Our Heads by The Rolling Stones (1965)
