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.

Sex, Individualism, and Civilization: Another Look in The Rear View Mirror

Posted by Dale Kuehne on January 11, 2014

Kristin Rudolph’s blog about my Q Talk last April. I think she said it better than I did. Almost certainly in regard to grammar. 🙂

I got a custom Continental
Made in 1965
But with a save the planet sticker
That makes it kind of hard to drive

I got a big house full of pebbles
And I’m a big fan of both kinds
I know one can keep the doctor away
And one can sure mess with your mind

It’s the best of times
It’s the worst of times
Might not change the world
But I’ll change it in mine

Chanel my teen fears
Our best days are behind
But not mine
Not mine

And my toys are made in China
My guitar’s in Mexico
My frozen food comes from Japan
Give me a dog from Chicago

I need to take myself to Yellowstone
Climb up to that blue ridge too
Remind myself of what’s beautiful
About the big white red and blue

It’s the best of times
It’s the worst of times
Might not change the world
But I’ll change it in mine

Chanel my teen fears
Our best days are behind
But not mine
Not mine

When I woke up this morning
I got down on my knees to pray
‘Cause my end time is done running out
But my calendar’s full of days

It’s the best of times
It’s the worst of times
Might not change the world
But I’ll change it in mine

The breaking news reports
Our best days are behind
But not mine
Not mine
Not mine
Not mine
Not mine

Best of Times by Sheryl Crow from Feels Like Home (2013)
