This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Commutative justice

The first and most immediately apparent economic relationship is that which exists between one individual and another in daily commerce. Because this sort of justice concerns contracts between individuals and strictly follows the principle of “equality in exchange,” we call this justice commutative. Commutative justice obliges that we pay others what we owe them, fulfilling our contractual obligations to the greatest extent possible. [1]
