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.

Sex and the iWorld: The CPX Interviews

Posted by Dale Kuehne on November 6, 2011

Here is a video interview on Sex and the iWorld that I gave to the Centre for Contemporary Christianity in June of 2011

A sweet young man sat on my chair
With a tape machine and a face of fear
He asked how does it feel to be who you are
I thought, this boy really thinks I’m a star
I answered him with humility
And then asked him if he’d like some tea

Interview, who’s interviewing who
Are you interviewing me
Or am I interviewing you

He asked if the rug was some ancient, lovely thing
I lied and said ‘Yes a gift from a king’
I watched his arms and how his lips moved
He asked me if my parents approved
He asked to see my Ruby ring
And if as a child I had liked to sing

Interview, who’s interviewing who
Are you interviewing me
Or am I interviewing you

I said yes, Oh yes 400 times
‘You’ve so open’he said ‘So you always tell the truth?’
‘Never,’I said, ‘That’s that?’


Interview by Carly Simon and Don Was from Spoiled Girl (1985)
