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.

Apocalypse (5 Days From ) Now; or, did it already happen?

After a week of doomsayers from the right, here is one from the left. Apparently God died but forgot to tell us.

come into the union district
drive down on sharmon palms
white ghettos paint a picture
broken homes and broken bones
i was so full of scotch i could not stand up
i was hittin the shots and i moved to a cup
release me from moral assumption
total rejection total destruction
nihilistic feelings are moving if i try real hard
i’ll see right through them

nihilism!

walkin a path of self destruction
not affected by the repercussions
lady on the billboard offer me a drink
said not right now i need time to think
nihilistic feelins are movin
if you try real hard
you’ll see right through them

i was so full of scotch i could not stand up
i was hittin the shots and i moved to a cup
white ghettos paint a picture
broken homes and broken bones

<strong>Nihilism by Rancid from Let’s Go (1994)
