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.

Of things forgotten and longed for still (Intermesso, Part 4)

Posted by Dale Kuehne on October 25, 2010

Continued from Friday…

It is as if we now find ourselves trapped in a place where we can relationally wish for whatever we want, but we can only live vicariously.

We have forgotten how to live and redefined what it means to love another.

    Living vicariously is a prop, a crutch. Sometimes props and crutches are really helpful.
    Dropping props and crutches is a sign of heroic living, I think.
    We ARE called to be saints, i.e., moral heroes in God.
