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.

I’ve been posting signposts of the iWorld for the last 14 months. I’ve not had any need to comment on the postings. I believe the iWorld speaks for itself. Every day in countless ways.

Recently many of you have expressed sentiments that may be summed up as: “enough already,” or “you are being deceptively dark and extreme,” and others “so what?” The first two tend to be expressed by those over 50, the latter by my students.

I’ve had several parents challenge my most recent postings as unfit for children. Indeed. That is both the point and the question.

Is the iWorld the way forward (as the vast majority of those aged 15-29 believe)?

Or is it unfit for children, if not adults?

Or? ….
