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.

    Sex & the iWorld

    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.

Tell me all your thoughts on God.

According to a recent Pew study, we have a lot of different thoughts

She sits him down in a stiff chair
Rubs his back and strapes his hair
Telling him it’s ok to cry but he just sits and stares
The merciless moon outside, has nothing now he’s come to realize
Only the desolation he feels, the cold distance inside

But you and I now, we can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true
You and I now, ‘though it’s cold inside
Can feel the tide turning

While the priest just sits and weeps
Lamenting the fact that he can’t see
Darkness and light and so much detail is given himself over
Refusing what he knows to be real,
Turns away from every meal
Starving himself of goodness,
He don’t think he can heal

But you and I now, we can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true
You and I now, ‘though it’s cold inside
Can feel the tide turning

What if I’ve lost all I had
Says the stranger to his dad
And the witness is confused
He can’t tell what it’s about
So he runs up to the nearest girl
And he comments on her glorious curls
Says darling come with me
I’ll show you a whole new world

Feel the Tide Turning by Mumford and Sons (Unpublished)
