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.

Welcome to Our (Politically Correct) Nightmare Take 2

Posted by Dale Kuehne on June 8, 2015

Peer-review is the gold standard for publishing in the Academy, except when it comes to findings that don’t support the prevailing politically correct ideology about sexuality and identity. Professor Mark Regnerus speaks about the firestorm he endured when he published findings in an esteemed peer-reviewed journal about the variety of parenting and outcomes for children in America. Like Professor Edward Schlosser, a self-avowed liberal (about whom the last Signposting was written), he speaks of the chilling effect of the blow-back that comes from exploring ideas that challenge the spirit of the age, which is, supposedly, the raison d-etre of the University.

All in all just another brick in the wall.

We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey teacher leave them kids alone
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2 by David Gilmour and Roger Waters from Pink’s Floyd’s, The Wall (1979)

  1. An excellent choice of songs for the topic. At the time it came out, it seemed to Pink Floyd’s fans to be a modern, edgy attack on British/Western education as thought control. It already seemed rather ho-hum 1960’s to me even then. They had gotten these ideas from a minority of their teachers in the 50’s and 60’s of course, and by the late 70’s it was dominant. It was the new thought control, now firmly installed.

  2. Thanks for drawing attention to this issue and article. We are re-experiencing a process Western culture should know better than to tolerate. The absolute worst of our history is directly connected not to religion, but to a small group demanding the whole capitulate to its social demands, even if the ‘whole’ knows what is demanded of it is wrong. Hundreds of years of wars and genocides and all sort of atrocities seem to have informed us not at all. This is so sad.
