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).

Liberalism is not an American political party

Despite the way the term is used in the United States, when the popes speak of liberalism they are not fighting against the American Democratic Party. They have something much larger in mind. No doubt, of course, the American “liberals” are products of the liberal ideology, as evidenced by their preference for secularism in political affairs and their insistence on the absolutism of certain political rights; however, American “conservatives” are just as much children of liberalism as their counterparts, what with their intemperate devotion to the autonomy of markets, combined with their insistence on the absolutism of property rights. The two American parties are both thoroughly liberal—they simply represent two different sides of the coin.
