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.

Standing at the Dead End of Love

Posted by Dale Kuehne on August 28, 2012

I recently realized I’ve never had a mid-life crisis. I’ve been having a whole life crisis.

You can read about it here:

You’re a precious stone, you’re out on your own.
You know everyone in the world, but you feel alone.
Daddy won’t let you weep, Daddy won’t let you ache
Daddy gives you as much as you can take.
Aha, sha-la. Aha sha-la.
Daddy’s gonna pay for your crashed car.

A little uptight, you’re a baby’s fist
Butterfly kisses up an’ down your wrist.
When you see Daddy comin’, you’re lickin’ your lips
Nails bitten down to the quick.

Aha, sha-la. Aha sha-la.
Daddy’s gonna pay for your crashed car.
Daddy’s gonna pay for your crashed car.

You’ve got a head full of traffic, you’re a siren’s song.
You cry for Mama, and Daddy’s right along.
He gives you the keys to a flamin’ car.
Daddy’s with you wherever you are.

Daddy’s a comfort, Daddy’s your best friend
Daddy’ll hold your hand right up to the end.

Aha, sha-la. Aha sha-la.
Daddy’s gonna pay for your crashed car.
Daddy’s gonna pay for your crashed car.

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Saturday’s alright.

Daddy’s Gonna Pay for Your Crashed Car by U2 from Zooropa (1993)
