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).

Population control is not the answer

For society to close itself to human life would not be a legitimate means of opening itself to other forms of life on this planet. The one need not suffer at the expense of the other, but they must both be respected in their proper order. Those who propose mandated birth control or abortion as the proper means of solving the environmental crisis are taking the easy way out and degrading human life in the process.[1] Such a solution attempts to fix the problem without discipline and without having to change our lifestyle of excess. It amounts to denial of the real causes, which lie elsewhere: “To blame population growth instead of extreme and selective consumerism on the part of some, is one way of refusing to face the issues.”[2]
