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.

    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.

Trump’s First 100 Days: Lonely Like America

Posted by Dale Kuehne on April 27, 2017

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) today published my editorial on Trump’s first 100 days.

http://www.abc.net.au/religion/articles/2017/04/28/4660433.htm

For we are lonely like America
Land of less and more
Lonely like America
Mythic Graceland tour
The pioneers and racketeers
Sepia wagon trains
Across the Midwest plain

Lonely like America
The hustler and the free
Lonely like America
From sea to shining sea
The flag that’s draped round the brave
Stars and stripes of deep dismay
Simply not having a nice day
We are lonely we are America
Lonely like America

Martyn Joseph, Lonely Like America from Under Lemonade Skies (2010)

    Really good and thought provoking post, Dale. Will there be a follow-on post for “What should I do if I recognise myself in this piece?”. As in terms of life, values, how I run business, how I interact with others – it was all a bit close to the mark.

  2. Absolutely fantastic read. I especially appreciate your statement that Trump is not an ideologue. This will come as a shock to some of my ultra-conservative friends, but it was and is obvious to any who wish to notice. It would be a good idea for folks on both political poles to read and take note. It will be an interesting four years (minus about 100 days).
