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).

Prospects of success

It is not possible to be certain of success in war, regardless of superiority of technology or numbers, as the United States learned in Vietnam. Thus, we see that the third condition—“serious prospects of success”—is not so demanding as the first condition. Regarding the threat, we must be absolutely certain; regarding our success, we need only be reassured that there is a substantial possibility. If the endeavor is futile, then it is unjust to sacrifice lives in its pursuit.
