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).

Volume 1 | Volume 2 | Volume 3| Volume 4 | Volume 5 | Volume 6

The impotence of knowledge

Herodotus said that ‘the worst pain a man can suffer is to have insight into much and power over nothing.’ But I think it was Nietzsche who added that this mostly applies to the powerfully minded young, who are just beginning to recognize their powers while at the same being confronted with the world’s indifference to it. But this passes, or should pass, with maturity.
