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).

Eternal law

Whenever we come upon a community of beings ruled by a sovereign who directs them toward their good, we come upon a law. If there are different kinds of these communities, they will be directed by a different kind of law. Now, the first and foremost of communities is the universe. The universe and every being within it are sustained in their very existence by the will of God and act in accordance with his rule. From this single rule, which is called eternal law, all other varieties of law are derived.[1]
