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.

    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.

The Legal Fight Over Bestiality in Germany (Update)

Posted by dalekuehne on December 6, 2012

Earlier this year I posted an article describing German animal brothels. There is a move in the German Parliament to outlaw activity with animals that is “alien to the species.” The article highlights the debate over the issue and the arguments of those who would seek to block the law or have it overturned in the courts. Another signpost of the iWorld.

Walking backwards down the stairs
Trying to get higher
How can I get anywhere
Walking backwards down the stairs

Watching life elude me
Slipping through my grasp
Oh I know the truth at last
But to reach the top I’ve
Got to stop from

Walking backwards down the stairs
Trying to get higher
How can I get anywhere
Walking backwards down the stairs

People stop to watch me
Wonder what I’m doing
What direction I’m pursuing
I pretend I’m free
But actually I’m

Walking backwards down the stairs
Trying to get higher
How can I get anywhere
Walking backwards down the stairs

Walking Backwards Down the Stairs by Larry Norman from Upon This Rock (1969)
