This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
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).

Discover the Self

It should be clear by this point that social life and solitude are not opposites. Yes, it is true that where real community still exists and where one can emerge from solitude and truly identify with others via social activity, then we could present solitude and social life as opposites, but in the modern context, social life is usually just another kind of isolation. To go out into society is to immerse oneself in a multitude of other solitudes. In fact, you can learn a great deal about the dangers of perpetual solitude by observing the average man in the street, since that is his reality.
