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.

Walking backwards down the stairs
Trying to get higher
How can I get anywhere
Walking backwards down the stairs

Watching life elude me
Slipping through my grasp
Oh I know the truth at last
But to reach the top I’ve
Got to stop from

Walking backwards down the stairs
Trying to get higher
How can i get anywhere
Walking backwards down the stairs

People stop to watch me
Wonder what I’m doing
What direction I’m pursuing
I pretend I’m free
But actually I’m

Walking backwards down the stairs
Trying to get higher
How can I get anywhere
Walking backwards down the stairs

Walking Backwards Down the Stairs by Larry Norman from Upon this Rock (1969)

The New Chinese Cultural Revolution: Fear and Loneliness

Posted by Dale Kuehne on October 17, 2012

The iWorld has come to China.

China cannot survive the loss of a cultural/social/spiritual narrative.

Neither can we.

If I could find someone who really cared for me
someone to share my love and keep me company
If could find someone I’d let them take control
and in exchange for love I’d give my very soul

It’s such a lonely life
I almost cry each night
cause faith has put me on the shelf
I get so lonely, so lonely by my self

If I could find someone who’d really love me right
they’d make my life complete they’d make my soul shine bright
I’ve looked around the world I’ve walked down every street
still I can’t find no one to give me what I need

It’s such a lonely life
I almost cry each night
cause faith has put me, faith has put me on the shelf
I get so lonely so lonely by my self
I get so lonely, so lonely, so lonely by my self

Who can I turn to
Is there anybody there
doesn’t anybody care
Oh doesn’t anybody listen
doesn’t anybody care

Lonely by Myself by Larry Norman from So Long Ago the Garden (1973)
