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.

People of america

To preserve peace
In our empire
Throw them to the lions
Darling, let us go to the banouet hall…
There will be a great feast tonight!
Who are these christians?

Hail caesar hail caesar
Grapes from sicily
Silks from asia minor
All the tea in china

Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions
Who are these christians?
Turn the other cheek…

Two thumbs down
The christians are restless
Why not let them worship their god?
No one believes in the old gods
How tiresome…attending the rituals
Paying lip service to the portents
Burning incense at their shrine
No one believes in the old gods

Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions
Throw them to the lions
Hahahahahaha

And his brain is addled… pay him no mind!

No one believes in the old gods…
The empire is tired…caesar will rest now
We depart for my chambers
Come darling

Caesar will rest now
Hail rome hail caesar hail
Put him in the fiery pit
Ha ha ha ha!

Caesar by Iggy Pop from American Caesar (1993)
