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.

But of mother, father, and child who is the biggest loser?

Dad, I hate to tell ya
Sometimes I wanna slap you in the face
But Dad, I gotta tell ya
If you were gone I’d miss you from this place

Don’t go away again
I just wanna be your friend
And if I don’t say this now
I’m gonna be sorry
Don’t wanna make this same mistake again

Dad, I need to tell ya
Sometimes I wanna walk right out the door
But Dad, I’m gonna tell ya
I’m glad that we don’t argue like before

Don’t go away again
I just wanna be your friend
And if I don’t say this now
I’m gonna be sorry
Don’t wanna make the same mistake again

Dad, I need to tell ya
Sometimes its hard to show you how I feel
Dad, I’m gonna tell ya
I wish that all our differences weren’t real

Don’t go away again
I just wanna be your friend
And if I don’t say this now
I’m gonna be sorry
Don’t wanna make the same mistake again

I see the older that I get
I’m becoming you
I see the older that I get
I’m becoming, I’m becoming you!

Dad I wanna tell ya
I just wanna take away your pain

Dad by Goldfinger from Open Your Eyes (2002)
