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.

Pornography: The Problem With Not Getting Caught

Posted by Dale Kuehne on March 14, 2011

My latest sharewik.com blog.

I know a movie star, I’ve got her plastered to my wall
Just like we’re dear old friends, like she already knows me
She’s perfect as she seems, lifts me right out the Mezzanine
I finally fell in love, I’d been waiting forever

Four, three, two, one
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down.
Stay out, I’ll stay in.
Half dead, half numb
She’s enough to make me warm
It’s all so safe and sound.

Lie back and fast asleep, if you could see what I could see
Drip drop a lovely dream
G** damn you movie star, can’t you just stay a minute more
We’d be the best of friends, you could stay here forever

Four, three, two, one
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down.
Stay out I’ll stay in.
Half dead, half numb
She’s enough to make me warm
It’s all so safe and sound.

She will be sweet on me, just like a mystery
It’s not so hard to see if I’m not mistaken
She comes from far away, and gets closer everyday
And all that I can say is that she’s all I want and all that I live for

Four, three, two, one
When at the barrel of a gun
Keep my head way down.
Stay out I’ll stay in.
Half dead, half numb
She’s enough to make me warm
It’s all so safe and sound.

Barrel of a Gun by Guster from Lost and Gone Forever (1999)
