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).

Public office or spoils of war?

In America there is no public office, at least not since Andrew Jackson set the precedent of treating office-holding as ‘spoils’, and to the victor go the spoils. This rejects the idea of public office as a responsible service and makes those who hold office the mighty victors of a conflict who now, by right, get to enjoy the benefits of their struggle, and it was always a private and partisan struggle.
