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.

Emerging Adulthood and Post-Modern Love

Posted by Dale Kuehne on January 23, 2014

The Wall Street Journal on post-modern marriage … delayed … love … at a distance.

I know when to go out
I know when to stay in
Get things done

I catch the paper boy
But things don’t really change
I’m standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try

There’s no sign of life
It’s just the power to charm
I’m lyin’ in the rain
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Modern love, gets me to
The church on time

Church on time, terrifies me
Church on time, makes me party
Church on time, puts my trust
In God and man

God and man, no confessions
God and man, no religion
God and man, don’t believe
In modern love

It’s not really work
It’s just the power to charm
I’m still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Modern love, gets me to
The church on time

Church on time, terrifies me
Church on time, makes me party
Church on time, puts my trust
In God and man

God and man, no confessions
God and man, no religion
God and man, don’t believe
In modern love

Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Modern love, gets me to
The church on time

Church on time, terrifies me
Church on time, makes me party
Church on time, puts my trust
In God and man

God and man, no confessions
God and man, no religion
God and man, I don’t believe
In modern love

Modern love, modern love, modern love
Modern love, modern love, modern love
Modern love, modern love, modern love
Modern love, modern love, modern love

Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)

Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Never gonna fall for modern love
(Modern love)

Modern Love by David Bowie from Let’s Dance (1983)
