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.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases The Morning After (Pill)

Posted by Dale Kuehne on May 3, 2013

American public policy is … complicated. We pay millions of dollars annually in tobacco price supports even as we spend more money trying to get people to stop smoking.

Presently the government is warning us about a significant rise in sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) among young people, with women bearing the most significant risks of serious complications, even as the FDA has just made the decision to permit the unregulated sale of the morning after pill to woman as young as 15.

What’s more, the government and the media is all the while preaching the importance of “protected” sex (condom), yet not being forthcoming about the fact that while using condoms is an effective way to prevent the transmission of HIV, condoms are less effective against the very STD’s that are on the rise.

Sex is never just sex.

Nor is it safe.

What passes for public health in the iWorld …

Meanwhile back to reality.

It’s the morning after, aftermath
move forward forget the past
because last night was unbearable
Though it’s over, it never ends
Finding comfort in my best friends
last niht was horrible

The only cure for a broken heart
is to rip it out and put it in a jar
filled with Novocain
Reattach after thirty days
or until the pain
fades away…fades away

We both promise not to forget
We’ll always be there, we always be friends
Come what may
Standing over, cleanse my wounds
Even if the gun was fired by you
Remember, remember there’s a place inside my heart for you always

The only cure for a broken heart
is to rip it out and put it in a jar
filled with Novocain
Reattach after thirty days
or until the pain
fades away…fades away
Why can’t this all fade away
It’s never okay, it’s never okay
Why can’t this all fade away
It’s never ok, it’s never okay
Why can’t this all fade away
It’s never ok, it’s never okay
Why’d it all have to end this way

The only cure for a broken heart
is to rip it out and put it in a jar
filled with Novocain
Reattach after thirty days
or until the pain
fades away…fades away
