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.

Condoms and Cola in New York City

Posted by dalekuehne on June 26, 2012

It’s easier to get a condom in a New York City public school than a soda. Fascinating what we regulate and what we don’t.

Why focus on childhood obesity and ignore mind obesity?

Quietly losing their face and identities,
Silently turning humans to entities,
Programming minds of the manipulated
Consciousness abandoned and mutilated

Mind obesity, corroded brains
No necessity – they live in vain
Mind obesity, subdued again
Your brain capacity is not the same

Existence brought down to the primitive
Such pestilence left no alternative
Obscene propaganda infecting the masses
Creating the rules, defining the classes

The thought of freedom for no one to dare
Standing on the road to nowhere
Building their urge to grab, not create
All on the way shall they annihilate

Existence brought down to the primitive
Such pestilence left no alternative
Obscene propaganda infecting the masses
Creating the rules, defining the classes

Mind obesity, corroded brains
No necessity – they live in vain
Mind obesity, subdued again
Your brain capacity is not the same / 2

Mind obesity…
Mind obesity…
Mind… obesity…
Mind… obesity…


Mind Obesity by Cupola from Mistaken by Design (2007)
