This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

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).

Memory is the first of three “cognitive dispositions” which permit the development of the necessary conditions for the actual exercise of prudence, and without which the exercise of prudential judgment is only an illusion. The healthy disposition of memory is bound to assist in the effective exercise of prudence because it gives he who develops it the capacity to recall and reflect upon past experiences in an objective fashion, and without falsification.[1]
