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).

Must not produce greater evils

Here we are concerned with the consequences of war insofar as they are possible to foresee. On this point we must remember St. John Paul II’s dictum, that unintended consequences of any action will often outnumber the intended, because a rational calculation of all effects is impossible.[1] But whatever consequences we are able to calculate must be seriously weighed and must not constitute an evil greater than the original.
