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).

Freedom and truth

What has been said so far can be summarized through words of Christ: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”[1] For this reason he proclaimed to Pilate: “For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth.”[2] And in bearing witness to truth, he set humanity free.

Thus, John Paul II spoke correctly when he said that the “[w]orship of God and a relationship with truth are revealed in Jesus Christ as the deepest foundation of freedom.”[3] “[O]nly the freedom which submits to the Truth leads the human person to his true good. The good of the person is to be in the Truth and to do the Truth.”[4]
