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.

From Here to Maternity

This is the last month
A childhood disappears
She may look young for her age
But she is brave beyond her years
With the weight of the world on her shoulders
And the weight of a child inside
And it’s the waiting that’s the hardest part
For the boy who cried wolf
And the girl who cried

This could be the last week
But she thought that last week
And she was wrong
When he mentioned getting married
She said “I must he getting along”
He said he loved her
But when he left her
He said goodbye not “see you soon”
And she’s strong enough to say “fuck off”
To the eternal bride and the infernal groom

These are the last days
It’s coming, ready or not
She says to herself
“So far so good
So help me God”

From here to maternity

This is the first day of the first month of the first year
