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).

The importance of understanding your situation

It is a matter of prudence that you understand the unique characteristics of your time and place. If a person intends to travel into a hostile wilderness, he is a fool if he does not, at the outset, make efforts to learn the conditions and environmental forces with which he will have to cope. Is he in the desert or in the arctic? What is the season? Is it day or night? Are there indigenous people with peculiar customs? Are they Christians, communists, or cannibals? Your acquaintance with these things will decide whether you reach food, water, and shelter, or on the other hand, confusion, hunger, and death. If this is important with respect to your geographical situation, it is also essential when it comes to your historical situation. Therefore, your first task must be to identify the ambient conditions of the modern world, and this will enable you to seek out what is healthy and beneficial, and avoid what is toxic.
