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).

The diversity of humanity

There are several humanities (human types) and each human type is so different from the other that they usually remain ignorant of the existence of the other types. This is not difficult to see in the United States, with regard to how it sees other nations and cultures. Every other people is appraised as if they were the American people with the same needs, temperament, and interests. Most groups are externally similar enough to Americans that this illusion can be maintained even upon contact with them. When the difference is too striking, however, the result is always violence and even genocide. Taking the “American Indians” and the negro people, for example, we can say that another response to a different human type is to classify them as something other than human. If a particular “humanity” is not identical with North American humanity, it cannot be acknowledged as humanity at all, but must be relegated to the animal kingdom.
