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).

Man is body and soul

Two errors: total identification with the soul, over and against the body; total identification of the body, while denying the soul. Both deny a part of reality, even if the latter kind of denial is obviously more profane.

The mystery of man is that he can choose to be what God made–exemplifying the beautiful and the good–or he can be something else. The rose is beautiful, and gives glory to God through its beauty, but it could not do otherwise. The rose must be what it is. Only man has the prerogative to be himself, or be something else.
