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.

Monogamy Makes a Comeback

Posted by Dale Kuehne on March 9, 2011

Even as adults try to encourage teens to experiment with sex (see yesterday’s Signposting), young adults are discovering the value of monogamy.

Interestingly, it may be that the flower children of the 60’s have something to learn from their children.

There is good reason to believe in the rWorld

I pack my things I go
I leave you all alone
Well J. it`s about time
To face the facts
Our relationship sucks
Oh after six years
of sex with you I´m
blured
Oh even a beauty can bore
Monogamy, my agony
Is not inborn
When I`ve said
I`ve done it all for you
I`ve always been true blue
Whenever you were sad
I was there

Yeah
I lied
All the nights I spent through
Lying next to you
Listening to your breath
It`s such a drag
To loose the best I`ve ever had
To accept the fact that
I will miss you
…ignore the fear
of being alone
My Venus is there
nothing left between us
Monogamy my agony
Is not inborn

I`ve done it all for f****** you
I`ve always been true blue
Whenever you were so sad
I was there


Monogamy by Emil Bulls from Monogamy (2000)
