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.

Twittering Love Away

News Flash: Self-absorbtion has a Relational Cost

http://m.gizmodo.com/5793520/why-twitter-might-be-ruining-your-love-life

The rumors are true, I deleted my twitter.
Can you believe
I got, got 2 million
Then I said adios
I had to say goodbye
and this little rap is to tell my fans why.

No it wasn’t because my friend told me to
Y’all know very well what you say I don’t do
And the reasons are simple I started tweeting about pimples
I stopped living for moments and started living for people
Yeah you write what you’re doing but who really cares
If I’m playing with Noah or just doing my hair

Everything that I type and everything that I do
All those lame gossip sites take it and they make it news
I want my private life private, I’m done trying to please
I aint living for tabloids, no I’m living for me.
No more emo quotes and big fued with Demi
Yeah I’m done with all that and the truth is I’m too busy
Yeah I gotta admit I miss Dane Cooks tweets and I really like looking at Katy Perry and Britney.
I might have some withdraws I was a little obsessed but I’m peacing out and I’m leaving with this
Goodbye


Goodbye Twitter by Miley Cyrus (2009)
